Long walks in the crisp air, frosted landscapes, warming fires and decorations galore - we've got everything you need to make your Christmas special.
Take a look at our events page to find out what's happening near you. There's everything from wreath making to guided walks.
If you're planning a break over Christmas and New Year 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.
Every Christmas the team at Cotehele create a beautiful 60ft garland in the great hall, made from dried flowers grown on the estate.
The flowers have been drying since May (see the video above). From 7 Nov the garland starts to be created, and you'll be able to see, and even help, it's creation.

Enjoy the places we care for on foot. Outdoor spaces take on a new element at this time of year as views open up and lower temperatures mean crunchy grass and frozen puddles.
