Many years before I started out the Cornish Coast path my Mum gave me a book which outlined the South Devon coast using aerial photography.

Roz and I started out at Lyme Regis, and during the course of a season (and with various companions) I eventually made it to Coleton Fishacre.

The inaccessibility of the area, and lack of enthusiastic co-walkers meant that I never finished the most local part of our coast path.

During the weekend a business commitment gave me the chance to set out once again, but not before a thorough investigation of the Art Deco home we’d missed approximately 16 or 17 years ago.

Here’s a snap from Saturday 11th July 2015.

This one is a scale model, which shows the westerly elevation.

Perhaps the roof plan gives a better idea of this historic building which lies a few miles east of Kingswear, and the Dart Estuary.

The main entrance is set into the North wing, and features a vast circular courtyard cum driveway.

Around the corner, the West elevation provided the occupants with fabulous garden views, and lashings of afternoon sunshine.

  1. thank you for the tour, Steven. I clicked on the link and enjoyed the video of the southwest coast, absolutely stunning I say! Will you be attending the Jazz Festival on the 31st?

    • Hello Joy, apologies for my slow reply. I’ve been away from home almost non stop for 10 days. The only Jazz I like is made by Honda! I think it’s called Honda Fit in the USA.
