Coleton Fishacre

Coleton Fishacre

The D'Oyly Carte family's country retreat in the 1920s features an Arts and Crafts exterior and Art Deco interiors, along with servants quarters and stunning sea views.

Surrounded by woodland and wildflowers, the RHS-accredited coastal valley garden offers a picturesque setting with exotic plants, herbaceous borders, and breathtaking sea views.

From Scout Point, one can enjoy panoramic views of the rugged coast, including Kingswear and the Mewstone, an outcrop of rocks that attracts seabirds and seals.

The estate provides convenient access to the South West Coast Path, which can be reached from the bottom of the garden. This allows visitors to explore routes leading to Froward Point, Coleton Camp, and various beaches.

A notable highlight along the coast path is Pudcombe Cove, where one can gaze down and see a 1920s tidal pool and changing rooms. Unfortunately, the cove itself is not accessible.

For refreshments, Café Coleton offers a light and airy space with both indoor and covered outdoor seating. They serve a variety of hot and cold drinks, cakes, ice cream, and light lunches.

Additionally, there is a shop on the premises, offering a selection of gifts, local produce, and gardening accessories. In the courtyard, visitors can find seasonal plants, while the Seemly Hut houses a collection of pre-loved gardening books.
