Perched high above the River Tamar, Cotehele stands as one of the best-preserved Tudor houses in the UK. Inside the fortified manor house, discover a rich collection of tapestries, arms and armor, pewter, brass, and old oak furniture. Outside, wander the formally planted terraces, explore the Valley Garden (including a medieval stewpond and dovecote), and visit the orchards. Walk down to the quay and hop aboard the restored sailing barge "Shamrock." To learn more about the history of Cotehele’s once bustling quay, visit the Discovery Centre. For an authentic Cornish experience, pop into the Edgcumbe tearoom for a Cornish cream tea.
