My wife and I called in here on a recent trip to Paignton and were pleased to find the house contains things which we have seen being used in our lifetime as opposed to centuries ago which is the normal type of NT property. Interesting rooms and informative guides tell the story of the house and its occupants and there... More

The grounds are stunning and the views are wonderful. The house was very interesting, with some stunning furniture. The lounge with the piano has a lovely feel to it, especially when there was a lady playing the piano (thank you). Very friendly staff, would go back again if in the area.

This Art Deco house was luxurious in its opulence; atmospheric in the 1920's music played by the enthusiastic pianist who also explained the history behind each piece that she played.The sun shone which enabled us to appreciate the beautiful gardens Both house and garden very well maintained by the N.T.

Fascinating house. More modern than most NT (Arts and Crafts) and many features reminded me of Eltham Palace (though somewhat less grand). A combined visit to here and nearby Greenway make an excellent day out. Lovely gardens

What a beautiful house. We visited Coleton Fishacre not knowing what to expect - and we thought it was stunning. The house itself is lovely, very stylish and elegant. The gardens are wonderful with walks near the sea. There is a shop and cafe offering home made cakes. We enjoyed it and would highly recommend a visit - it's not... More

My wife and I made our 2nd visit here last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it again. The house is lovely and for fans of art deco then the furnishing is great. The gardens are equally tremendous and there are lots to explore. Even the food there is good and our only disappointment was that we didn't see the estate cat... More

Do visit this wonderful house and grounds. It is owned by the National Trust so you need to pay on entry, and there is a pay car park unless you are a Nat. Trust member in which case it's free. The contents of the house are mainly Art Deco and some fabulous examples of furniture, lighting, mirrors and clothing from... More

What a gem of a place. The house is beautiful with beautiful gardens going down to the sea with a large variety of plants and flowers, some exotic as the climate is suitable. There are elegant Art-Deco interiors. It is the former home of the D'Oyly Carte family and one can see life as it was upstairs and downstairs and... More

We went because we were both interested in Art Deco and the period. The house was very fine and the Gardens and Outlook were absolutely superb. We would recommend it to anyone. PS It could be a bit difficult to find however we found our sat nav was spot on in directing us down quite narrow lanes. Keep a note... More

This must be one of the top places to visit in the country, National trust or otherwise. It really does have everything needed for a fulfilling trip: from the D'Oyly Carte beginnings on a bare site, with the design and construction of the house during the sylish 1920's, to the now mature and splendid gardens and walks in a marvellous...
