Autumn colour at Cotehele
Cotehele is ablaze with autumn hues of red, orange, yellow and brown and the ground is a carpet of crunchy leaves. A stroll around the garden reveals the best of the seasonal colour and sounds.
By the house
The Upper and Valley Gardens are full of colour as the trees and the borders around the ponds turn with the seasons, and don't miss the Acer Grove, where the fallen leaves crunch underfoot.
It's well worth taking a stroll up to the Mother Orchard too, where the rows of trees look spectacular at this time of year after the apple harvest.
You'll see plots of autumnal colour if you take a walk through the Valley Garden and along the woodland path past the Chapel-in-the-wood. There are fantastic views across the river to Calstock Viaduct from here as well.
From the Quay you can walk along Morden Stream to the Mill through the woodland and take the turning up to the weir for a more secluded stroll.
