#1 of 16 in Things to do in Saltash
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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. For Cotehele and beyond, use our Saltash vacation builder to get the most from your Saltash vacation.

  • Beautiful house and chapel, immaculately maintained. Knowledgeable guides. Wonderful gardens with many unusual trees and plants. Good shop and restaurant. Credit to all involved.
  • Fantastic country house with great walks through the woods or by the Riverside. Great food and drinks options. Slightly overpriced but to be expected with National Trust.
  • An excellent national trust property and estate, we couldn't see all of it on the one day so plan to go back soon. Excellent cafe for drinks and lunches and cream teas. Plus excellent views from the house.
  • The house and grounds were lovely, however the vintage day cost an extra £3 per head to look a half a dozen old vehicle and a few stalls. Quite disappointed with this.
  • Lovely house and gardens (formal and informal). Good coffee shop for snacks/food. Lots of interest including house and gardens, tower, river, mill. Lovely day out!
