Every Christmas the team at Cotehele create a beautiful garland in the great hall, made from dried flowers grown on the estate.
The flowers have been drying since May (see the video above). Admire the 60-foot garland, this year with 36,160 flowers grown in the garden.
If you're planning a break take a look at our holiday cottages. You can stay in some really unusual places, in gardens and estates, grand houses and cosy cottages.
There's everything you need for a brilliant family Christmas.
Alternatively, escape the chaos of the festive season and enjoy some tranquility at one of our secluded countryside cottages.

We care for some incredible outdoor places which become winter wonderlands at the time of year. As trees lose their leaves views become even wider and lower temperatures mean frosty grass and frozen puddles.
Lots of places offer trails and tracker packs too to help keep younger family members entertained.
Great for groups
