Walk past the café and cross the main tarmac path onto the top gravel path which runs behind the house. This will take you along the top of the Coleton Fishacre garden and through the woodland.
Once past the back of the house, you'll emerge out from under the trees and into an open space with a bench to your left. You can take a break here and admire the sea view and gazebo below.
Continue along this path passing wild meadows and on through paddock wood. On the left is the den building area, and there's a couple of benches a little further along this point for rest and view points of the valley garden.
Continue all the way to the end of this path and admire the view of the rugged coastline towards Dartmouth. You are now at Scout Point, which is one of the best viewpoints at Coleton Fishacre.
Return along the same path past the meadow which will lead you back to the house, café and shop.
