The Gardens at Cotehele

The manor house was built by the Edgcumbe family in the late 15th century and stands at the head of a valley garden dropping steeply to the River Tamar. Exotic and tender plants thrive in the mild climate and there is something to see throughout the year, with rhododendrons and azaleas a highlight.
To one side of the house is the Medieval stewpond and 15th century dovecote. More formal gardens surround the house, including terraces, whilst in the springtime the meadow beyond the north-west tower is carpeted with daffodils.
