Cotehele’s castellated gatehouse tower leads to a medieval courtyard with stone walls flanking the entrance to the Edgcumbe family’s ancestral home. The Tudor Hall, adorned with weapons and an ancient timber roof, belies the warren of tapestry-clad rooms beyond. The garden includes formal and informal plantings, orchards and 250 varieties of daffodils. The Valley Garden features an ancient stewpond and dovecote with a view of the river Tamar and Calstock viaduct. Cotehele Quay on the river, a thriving port in Victorian times, is home to the 1899 Tamar sailing barge Shamrock, ancient lime kilns and the Discovery Centre. Year- round events.
Dogs welcome throughout the estate. Assistance dogs only in the formal garden.
