Complete with a lot of original furniture including tapestries make this one of the best properties in the National Trust’s collection. Not the most glamorous (Waddesdon Manor it ain’t) but you certainly get a real sense of history, the oldest working clock in the UK,...More

Dog walking and mooching around in early February is still peaceful and interesting, not least the activities down by the river where skilled craftsmen are working hard on the renovation and rebuilding of the hull of the Tamar sailing barge Shamrock.

Enjoy a wide range activities at Cotehele, Cornwall. From a short or long walk, historic visit, everyone will enjoy their time spent there. Amazing landscapes and friendly National Trust staff.
