Nos 1 and 2 Coleton Barton are a pair of recently refurbished holiday cottages within five minutes' walk of the house and garden at Coleton Fishacre. These comfortable early twentieth-century cottages enjoy lovely rural views over rolling farmland, and share the large lawned garden surrounding them. Situated on the Kingswear peninsula with easy access to the sights and sounds of the South West Coast Path, they are surrounded by breathtaking scenery, with Scabbacombe Head and the sea to the east and south, whilst the colourful and historic Dart Estuary is to the west. This is an exceptional location from which to explore one of the very special corners of South Devon.

    Made enjoyable...

    As a family we loved going into Coleton Fishacre gardens at night under a full, glowing moon.

    Made special for us:

    Access to Coleton Fishacre garden and close to coast path walks. We wanted to 'escape' from Christmas and Coleton Barton was just the job! Cottage very clean and warm. Well equipped. Shower not great but this may be as not on mains water. Thought TV looked a bit out of place. Didn't watch it so wouldn't have missed it.

    High housekeeping standards

    We had a very good holiday. The cottage was very clean and the housekeeping standards were high. Good quality linens and furnishings made our stay a very happy experience. We shall book another cottage without doubt.
