Report

Built in medieval times, the current house is mostly Tudor. Make your way through four floors of history to learn about the Edgcumbe family who owned it 600 years ago.
The fortified manor house is set on a high bluff on the Cornish bank of the river Tamar, which gave natural protection from skirmishing armies approaching from the east.
Inside the rambling stone walls you'll find a fascinating collection that reflects the antiquarian taste of the Georgian Edgcumbes. The family developed the interiors between about 1750 and 1860 in a deliberate attempt to evoke a sense of nostalgia and recreate the atmosphere of the 'good old days'.
The house is an architectural hotch-potch, mainly re-built in Tudor times. The chapel was first consecrated in 1411, and was re-modelled in the early 1500s.

Cotehele is within walking distance from Okel Tor Mine and has a tea room by the quay which is dog-friendly. Cotehele is an enchanting medieval house and has delightful estate gardens and woodland walks.

Cotehele National Trust House, Gardens and Woodland walks are a great day out. Take in history, the beautiful countryside, river walks and maybe a Cornish Cream tea.
