Cotehele is a wonderfully preserved Tudor house filled with stories and legends, situated deep within the Tamar Valley. Outside, the formally planted terraces, 'Valley Garden', are home to a medieval stewpond and dovecote, the Upper Garden and orchards, all of which offer great opportunities for exploring.

Cotehele Quay is the home of the restored Tamar sailing barge Shamrock and is gateway to a wider estate. The Discovery Centre tells the story of the Tamar Valley.
