Stunning inside and out!

A beautiful house with lovely Art Deco rooms and gardens, well worth a visit. Nice food in the NT cafe too.

Lovely morning at Coleton Fishacre with 2x16 year olds. We all loved the house, gardens and had a delicious reasonably priced lunch. On a Feb sunny half term day it was busy but not crowded. I wouldn't want to visit on a sunny summer day if you don't like crowds though.

A delightful day spent here the house is fantastic and very interesting the house staff were all very knowledgable and engaging. The hands on room was also good fun for young and old. The grounds are overly and extensive it's well worth a walk down to the coastline. The only down side was the cafe which ran out of certain... More

As regular visitors we find that Coleton Fishacre never disappoints. A lovely house in a very human scale. Lovely gardens with wonderful sea views. A good tea room and shop, with good quality plants on sale in season.

Of all the NT houses this is my favourite - I'd move in tomorrow! I think this is the loveliest house in England. Kids loves exploring the house and garden using the treasure hunt sheets. Coffee and cake was tasty and the walk to the coast path and view of the bay sublime.

As an Art Deco fan I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! What a place. It just felt as thought the family had popped out and everything was just as they had left it. I could imagine myself living there. Fabulous and so well presented. Gardens were lovely and you could walk all the way down to the sea.

We went to Coleton for the Christmas Garden Lights and it was beautiful, what I was also really impressed with was that their café being National Trust had a range of gluten free foods. I had a beautiful mushroom soup with a gluten free roll which was actually amazing (need to find where they source them). Great to know of... More

We go to Coleton Fishacre every season as they change the accessories in the room to suit. The staff are very knowledgable and attend to you as though you are a house guest arriving for the weekend...I wish!

2015 was brilliant, and I thought could not be topped.....I was wrong, more illuminations than ever, all the way around the circular pathway. Where there were dark spots, stewards were there with torches to guide the way........it was superb beyond words......only slight downside, for me personally, I preferred the house decorations last year, the Mikado theme this year didn't work...
