I've been twice to see the Christmas garland which is always a busy time. It is absolutely amazing to see close up. I bought a packet of seeds to grow my own and they are now flowering well. A nice little gift shop and a very busy restaurant. Highly recommend

Cotehele was one of my favorite places to visit. The manor house is nice and old and rambling and it is full of the actual stuff that belonged there, particularly a great collection of tapestries (the walls are all sheathed in them!), textiles and furniture. There is an exquisite chapel with an important clock, a peephole to the entry room... More

We go to Cotehele a lot, living locally, and it's such a romantic and mysterious place to visit. Love it!

We arranged to meet an old school pal and his wife at Cotehele. Parts of the road to the place are very narrow in places: look out for the biggest blue tractor I have ever seen. I don’t think it had any brakes and I wondered whether driver’s parents were ever married. The house is lovely, set in beautiful gardens,... More

Cotehele is beautiful national trust property set in the Tamar valley . finding the property was easy, satnav took us straight there although the lanes are narrow. There was plenty parking with provision for disabled. The house was fascinating with its tapestries and the surrounding gardens were stunning. There is a restaurant and shop in the grounds of the house.... More

We found this house and gardens in the National Trust booklet. It was fantastic. As National Trust members, it was all free - that membership has paid for itself over and over!. We parked initially on the quay - it was a challenge to find the place. There was a charming gentleman there who as a docent told us all... More

This house is perfect and has amazing gardens. The house is just so beautiful and in a gorgeous setting. The history of the house is interesting and the house has been preserved in perfect order due to its history. After looking around the house itself take a look in the lovely shop. There is a lovely restaurant. Take a walk... More

First visit here and what a full day - so much to see in the house, round the gardens and a lovely walk to the mill. The craft workshops are worth a visit too as have some unusual gifts that are made locally which are worth supporting too. Would definitely come back again!

We enjoyed equally the house, the gardens and the restaurant . All very good indeed and well worth the expense.

The National Trust's website doesn't do this place justice and as result, we were very pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the gardens were. The flower garden in front of the house was a riot of colour with many species we hadn't seen before, (being from the North of England). The planting was beautiful and we spent ages looking around.
