Inspired by the Arts and Crafts and Art Deco design movements, Coleton Fishacre is the epitome of fine craftsmanship and style. The house has been featured twice in Country Life magazine as the ideal in tasteful country living. The property extends all the way to the nearby sea and includes exotic gardens planted by the house's first owner, Lady Dorothy Carte. In fact, Lady Carte hired a staff of six to care for the gardens while there were only four staff members for the house. Purchase tickets on site from the National Trust staff.
