Coleton Fishacre is a property consisting of a 24 acre garden and a house in the Arts and Crafts style, situated in Kingswear, Devon, England. The property has been in the ownership of the National Trust since 1982.

Coleton Fishacre was built as a summer retreat between 1925 and 1926 by Rupert and Dorothy D´Oyly Carte. The designer Oswald Milne, assistant to Edwin Lutyens, built and decorated the house in an Arts and Crafts style.

The 25 acres of gardens, are set in a sheltered, stream-fed valley, and lead down to the sea at Pudcombe Cove. The gardens are beautiful at any time of year, Bamboos, mimosas; myrtle and other moisture-loving plants grow profusely around the pool and streams. In the spring the thickly planted rhododendrons, magnolia and camellias create a stunning display of colour. A gazebo provides superb views over the sea below.

Formal terraces and walled garden provide summer long interest. Paths descend the informal wooded valley to the coastal path.

The property is open from mid-March through to the end of November each year on Wednesdays through to Sundays from 10.30am to 5.00pm. There is free parking and a Tea room.
