A VINTAGE STAY IN THE CHAUFFEUR'S FLAT AT COLETON FISHACRE, DEVON

Coleton Fishacre is a typical 1920s country retreat on Devon’s south coast, with a garden that captivates visitors of all ages throughout the year. Built in the Jazz Age, the house is still very much of that era and a must for anyone who enjoys the Art Deco style. Despite its year round beauty, it is in winter that you can have a truly unique experience.

In deepest darkest Devon, where the lanes are single track, the wind blows the trees into twisted shapes and waves crash against the unforgiving rocks, is the most perfect National Trust property I have ever visited.


Coleton Fishacre is an Arts and Crafts house that stands in 24 acres of sloping cliff side gardens in a remote part of south east Devon, only 2 miles from the River Dart estuary and the famous town of Dartmouth and only 5 miles from that far more famous National Trust property, Greenway, the summer home of the Queen of Crime who has made the English Riviera so famous.


Far off the beaten track, the property sits alone surrounded by nothing but fields and sea air.
