Cornwall Living

Behind the Scenes

As autumn moves into winter, there’s plenty of work to do in Cornwall’s stately homes and gardens to ensure they remain beautiful in 2015.

Cornwall’s stately homes are of immense historical significance to the county, and they’re also loved by many for a great day out – something that thousands of people enjoy between March and October. But what happens when the doors close?

Cotehele in the far east of the county on the River Tamar is one the the county’s most loved properties. It sits nestled into a hill in ancient woodland, with gardens that sweep down through a valley overlooking the river at Calstock.

This sturdy Tudor house, built by land-owning family, the Edgcumbes, was constructed in the late 15th and early 16th century. It is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture. The interior has changed little over the years.
