Notice: 18 June: Within the next seven days (as long as the weather behaves) the road leading to Coleton Fishacre will be resurfaced by South West Highways Ltd. This may cause some delays on your journey to Coleton Fishacre.
A luxuriant garden by the sea, with an Arts and Crafts-style house, featuring Art Deco-influenced interiors
Travel back in time to the Jazz Age at the country 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 country homes, built in the Arts & 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.
Note: narrow busy approach lane, reversing required - especially around busiest time of 1 - 2.30pm.
In July the garden will be transported to Japan for a performance of The Mikado. This wonderful Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera performed by Illyra is sure to be full of fun. It has great connections to Coleton Fishacre through Rupert D'Oyly Carte, manager of the opera company and original owner of Coleton.
On the first Friday of every month a fantastic local jazz band, Art Deco Music, strike up the 1920s tunes in Café Coleton. As you enjoy the concert a delicious two-course meal is served to your table, and the night is rounded off with coffee. What could be better?
RHS members can visit for free on Saturdays throughout the year and every open day from 10 - 23 June (excluding groups).
