About

Travel back in time to the Jazz Age at the holiday home of the D'Oyly Carte family. You can lose yourself in the magical 12-hectare (30-acre) garden: viewpoints give enticing glimpses out to sea, paths weave through glades past tranquil ponds, and tender plants from the Mediterranean, South Africa and New Zealand thrive in the moist and sheltered valley. This most evocative of holiday homes, built in the Arts and Crafts style, is imbued with 1920s' elegance. A light, joyful atmosphere fills the rooms and music plays, echoing the family's Gilbert and Sullivan connections.
Dogs: Well behaved dogs on short leads are welcome in the garden, café and shop. Assistance dogs welcome in the house

Coleton Fishacre is open daily, 10.30am-5pm, from 13 Feb until 30 October, and then 11am-4pm November and December weekends. They are also open 11am-4pm from 27-31 December.

    Lovely gardens and stunning sea views. The tropical gardens are the best we have seen this side of the Tamar, with tree ferns, banana trees, bamboos, gunneras, and many other exotics. Read full review
