Description and Information

Cotehele was the ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family for centuries. The Tudor house, perched high above the River Tamar, is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture. The interior tour has changed little over the years, although the furnishings were titivated as Cotehele continued to inspire its adoring owners.Outside, explore the formally planted terraces, or lose yourself in the Valley Garden, which includes a medieval stew pond and dovecote and leads down to the river. Seek tranquillity in the Upper Garden or visit the two orchards planted with local apples and cherries. From early spring flowers to herbaceous borders in high season, to the orchards in the autumn and snowdrops in winter, you’ll find horticultural activity all year round.
