Coleton Fishacre, Kingswear, Devon

Coleton Fishacre House was designed in 1925 as a holiday home for Rupert and Lady Dorothy D'Oyly Carte (of Gilbert and Sullivan fame) in the Arts and Crafts style, but with Art Deco influenced interiors. The terraced gardens fall down the valley to the sea leading from formal areas near the house through increasingly wilder areas to the South West Coastal Path at the top of the cliff above Pudcombe Cove. The garden is famous for its mild climate and high atmospheric humidity where many tender plants from the Mediterranean, South Africa and New Zealand thrive.
