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.

    Beautiful location

    The cottage was very quaint, cosy and comfortable - plenty of hot water, comfortable beds, warm rooms and easy access to roads and the property we were situated on. The situation was rural and really beautiful. I feel the cottages are expensive and certainly that is the impression of many people. I very much enjoyed having access to the grounds after closing time - Coleton Fishacre is truely beautiful and peaceful, this was a real treat and very much appreciated. I think this idea is inspired as it doesn't involve staff/volunteers but is a real treat for the holiday guest, a brilliant idea.

    Cosy cottage

    The beautiful location. A cosy cottage to return to after a busy day. Lovely to have free access to house and gardens. Free access to other National Trust properties within the area would be a real bonus.
