Wrap up warm and explore Coleton Fishacre this Christmas. The garden is merry and bright as twinkling lights lead you past magnificent trees and sparkling glades, illuminated with a festive glow. Inside, the house beckons to Christmases past, with a 1920’s festive party in full swing.
29 November - 31 December 2019
The much-loved Christmas tradition of Coleton Aglow is back. Begin your evening by following the path as it weaves between sparkling fairy lights towards the Rill Garden, and the light filled stream trickles down through the garden. Continue past exotic trees and plants, glittering disco balls and illuminated features to the magical fern glade at the bottom.
Follow the steps up to the summer house, where on a clear night you may glimpse stars and moonlit waves, before continuing to the gazebo. Mulled wines and mince pies await, as does the view across the illuminated valley garden.
As you wander back through the garden, the warm glow and seasonal cheer glimpsed through the house windows might tempt you to join the party and soak up more festivities indoors. Decadent decorations glisten and shimmer throughout while party music floats out into the grounds. To really put you into the Christmas spirit, upstairs 1920’s outfits are begging to be tried on.
Tasty treats and warming drinks are available from Café Coleton for you to enjoy under the stars, and before you leave don’t forget to browse the unique gifts and decorations in the shop.
