The National carriage museum at Arlington Court is certainly worth a visit if you are in the Lynton area. It provides a fascinating incite into the transport of the past. The gold 'speakers' coach which is there at present is spectacular.

We popped along from Croyde as the weather was a bit unpleasant for surfing. Lovely surprise when we arrived. Fab grounds and the carriages were amazing. We had a lovely lunch as well. Great day enjoyed by all.

Have lived here for twenty years and my first proper visit to Arlington Court's main house. What have I been missing? The visit is exceptionally good value for your entry fee (if you are not an NT member that is). The house is well laid...More

The carriage museum is a must on anyone's bucket list, it had The Speaker gold coach on display which was last used at Charles and Diana's wedding. Dozens of other types of coaches - some very bizarre. Walled gardens worth a visit, as was the...More

Fantastic cottage - very cosy and comfortable, in a lovely area. We loved Arlington Court - the Carriage museum and the wider estate. For anyone with mobility problems, like me: I found the gravel path difficult to walk on, and could not go up the...More

Sorry , I can't remember if its an inclusive price. You need good weather to view the gardens and estate though. I have visited often enough to know rain isn't good for walking through the lower estate

Not absolutely certain, as we don't have a dog, but I did see some people with dogs on leads around the grounds but not in the house or carriage museum. Hope this helps.
