A beautiful Art Deco house that has retained all its feature. A place we always visit when in the area. This year saw a bit more of the house was opened. Well worth a visit.

Horrible day so decided to visit something indoors. The house is lovely and it's position one to envy. Inside the decor is '20's and '30's and not to my taste, but it was fascinating to see how the wealthy lived at that time which was...More

This has to be one of the most beautiful homes in the UK, coupled with a glorious garden. Lovely cafe/restaurant, nice reasonably priced shop and welcoming and knowlegeable staff.

Visited on a very wet and windy Saturday. It certainly lifted my spirits. The house has been beautifully refurbished to its Art Deco roots. So stylish and impressive. The gardens are lovely. ( I’m sure they’d have been even better on a less miserable day,...More

Lovely place ruined by certain staff who refused to let me drive my car down to the house which is perfectly accessible apart from a gate to pick up my disabled grandmother. Positively unhelpful, rude and unaccommodating. Terrible shame and spoilt our day.

Just amazing! The house and contents are just lovely and so interesting! The staff are friendly helpful and informative. The gardens are spectacular and worth a visit on their own. Long queues in the cafe. Perhaps a separate queue for cake and drink?

We visited in early September and there was still plenty of colour in the garden, unlike Sissinghurst in Kent that we had visited the previous week. The house is a great Arts and Crafts house, built in the twenties. The raison d’etre for the NT...More

I believe dogs are allowed on a short lead, but it would be best to check with Coleton Fishacre to make certain.

Yes you can get to Coleton Fishacre via South West Coast Path, but I advise you to use the correct O.S Map because there are a couple of different ways to go each one can be quite strenuous.
