As you arrive and you see the house overlooking the pond you are attracted to a view at every turn or archway in this amazing garden. House tour is a must so much to see and enjoy. Even the very relaxed tea-room serves lovely home made cakes. An excellent day out and photographers dream location

Discovered by accident, I picked up a leaflet in our local supermarket. The gardens are wonderful in September even when they are starting to fade into autumn, they must have been magnificent during the summer, we are definitely going back. The House is fascinating with its history, architecture just grown over time and the amazing eclectic collection of family antiques... More

I became aware of Cothay after watching Country House Rescue. I visited for the first time last year with my Australian tour group. We had a tour of the house, lunch in the dining room and of course a walk around the stunning gardens. For me, Cothay is the most beautiful country house I've ever visited. Lunch was delicious -...

First thing to note is that this isn't the world's easiest garden to find one's way to, at least from the north of it ... mainly because of the reluctance of the locals to erect signposts that aid the motorist. However, it's well worth searching out. It has the type of structure that appeals to me, informal planting within formal... More

We travelled from the Midlands on a day trip. (Bear in mind a hot Saturday in August on the M5!!!) What a tiresome journey! Then through lanes barely wide enough for our coach but it was all worthwhile. The house is wonderful - full of treasures and we were encouraged to take our time as we moved from room to... More

I had tried to find Cothay previously and gave up but this time with the aid of the SatNav we found it. Signposting could be better but once you get there, it is fabulous. Beautiful gardens and very peaceful. Well worth perservering.

After seeing this place on Country House Rescue years ago I have been longing to visit it as the gardens looked amazing. Found is easier than I expected and was impressed even as we walked towards the entrance/tea room. The house looked amazing from the outside - next time I visit I shall pay to go round the interior.
