the classic guide

A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Coleton Fishacre

A fine example of Arts and Crafts style architecture, with lovely Art Deco interiors. The gardens cling to the valley sides and feature a rare collection of exotic plants. An events listing is available on their Website for both the house and gardens.

We walked to this property from Dartmouth which was a lovely quiet stroll along empty Devon lanes rewarded by a fascinating house with interesting period pieces and historical commentary followed by beautiful gardens with plentiful spots to sit and enjoy all the different styles and views within. For those wanting a snack the tea-room provided a good choice of quality foods served in either courtyard or an airy cafe. The walk back to Dartmouth can be by the same route or take in the Daymark and WW2 relics and SW coastal path if you are feeling more energetic

Walking Bliss - if you're up for it!

We park near this property and rather than visit the house, take to the coastal path. You have a choice of directions, towards Brixham or Kingswear. It's not for flip-flops, buggies, small children or the infirm; you need good stout boots and ankle support but the walk and views are breathtaking. I wouldn't recommend it in very slippery weather, unless you stop when you get to the cliff, but if, like me, you enjoy feeling the weather in your face to feel alive then this is great. Hard core steep in parts.
