Lovely house and gardens. On damp, muddy days they expect you to cover your dirty boots to protect the carpets. Staff are on hand to assist. The gardens are beautiful, but lots of steep inclines. The volunteers provide maps of some of the less steep...More

The 1920s house is a lovely example of 1920 decor along with sea views through the treasury. The grounds are amazing with lovely terraced walks taking you to absolutely stunning sea views. Highly recommended for any gardener.. The only issue was that it took over...More

NT house and garden, so limited opening over winter. Built by family who ran the Savoy, so beautiful arts and crafts house and furnishings fantastically preserved; but also an amazing garden in a valley running down to the South West Coastal path

One of the best National Trust properties we know. A beautiful house, on a human scale, and with a human story behind it. Well preserved and in a stunning location.

As the reviews suggest, superb place. Not one bad review. We visited on a glorious sunny October morning. Signposted from the Brixham to Dartmouth road. Last section of the road is narrow, with passing places. We got there at 1012am, it opens at 1030. All...More

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