Photographer's Note

Whilst exploring the interesting features of Cotehele House this apparition appeared, or was it someone messing about.....

Cotehele is Tudor house with superb collections of textiles, armour and furniture

Cotehele’s medieval origins provided a perfect setting for the Edgcumbes to show off their ancestral home to guests, such as King George III in 1789.

The Tudor house, with many stories and legends, is festooned with tapestries and adorned with textiles, 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 stewpond and dovecote. 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, there is something for everyone all year round in the garden.

The restored sailing barge 'Shamrock' is moored at the quay. Here the Discovery Centre tells the gripping story of the Tamar Valley, offering a gateway to the wider estate and is just a short walk through the Morden valley from our sister property Cothele Mill.
