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...

This is such a beautiful place. The house is a wonderful art deco building with lovely interiors and is set in fantastic gardens. If you are prepared to walk then you can get to the coast with stunning views of the sea. There are numerous walks in the fabulous gardens but some are a bit steep so you need to... More

A beautiful house which we have visited several times, but never after dark. And of course it's stunning. With lighting different aspects of the house become apparent such as the light fittings and bookcases. The piano in the lounge was being expertly played and one of the visitors stood up and sung for us. I could have spent all evening... More

I have visited Coleton many times for a variety of reasons, gardens, outside theatre to name a couple and have been inside the house many times so was looking forward to seeing the house decorated inside for Christmas. It was a let down I'm afraid. Apparently inspired by the Mikado, I personally thought it was lack lustre and very understated.... More

Love this place. Arrived a wee bit early for a walk with friends. Took a route out the front past Coleton Camp and circled round coming into the bottom of the gardens which are in great shape for this time of year. Have a quick tea in the Cafe before having a wander round the house.

If you love scenic clifftop views . Walks in wooded areas. Beautiful gardens and houses with character you will love this place. If you are feeling particularly fit then a short walk to scabbacombe beach is recommended. Very steep pathways to reach Brilliant all around day we had
