The National carriage museum at Arlington Court is certainly worth a visit if you are in the Lynton area. It provides a fascinating incite into the transport of the past. The gold 'speakers' coach which is there at present is spectacular.

We popped along from Croyde as the weather was a bit unpleasant for surfing. Lovely surprise when we arrived. Fab grounds and the carriages were amazing. We had a lovely lunch as well. Great day enjoyed by all.

Fantastic cottage - very cosy and comfortable, in a lovely area. We loved Arlington Court - the Carriage museum and the wider estate. For anyone with mobility problems, like me: I found the gravel path difficult to walk on, and could not go up the...More

This is such a lovely place. It includes a grand house to go round, a truly brilliant carriage collection, scrumptious tea rooms, shop and bats that can be viewed by camera but best of all are the grounds and gardens with plenty of room for...More

Thursday 27 July 17, It was raining, when we arrived at Arlington Court, so we decided to visit the house first. Arlington Court is an unexpected jewel; a complete family estate. The intimate Regency house contains treasures for all tastes, from model ships to shells,...More

Sorry , I can't remember if its an inclusive price. You need good weather to view the gardens and estate though. I have visited often enough to know rain isn't good for walking through the lower estate

Not absolutely certain, as we don't have a dog, but I did see some people with dogs on leads around the grounds but not in the house or carriage museum. Hope this helps.
