National Trust Coleton Fishacre
Travel back in time to the Jazz Age at the country home of the D'Oyly Carte family.
You can lose yourself in the RHS accredited 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.
Glimpse life 'upstairs and downstairs' from the glamorous Saloon to the light and airy recently opened servants' rooms.
