Get creative and notice nature
Let your imagination run wild and see what you create whilst discovering Cotehele this autumn. You could:
- Bring some paper and pencils or crayons with you. Find somewhere to sit in the garden and draw what you see – the view, a tree, a leaf or a bee buzzing among the late flowers.
- Pen a poem or a short story inspired by the woods and trees.
- Take a photo from interesting angles, to capture the changing colours, the dappled woodland shade and morning mists.
- Collect nature’s fallen bounty to create a colourful pattern or a simple take-home memento.
We would love to see your creations take a photo and share with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #AutumnAtCotehele and #EveryoneNeedsNature
Sheltered lunch and picnic spots
The Barn Restaurant near the house is open daily for takeaway only. You can pick up additional picnic supplies, hot and cold drinks, cream teas, pasties and more. If you are popping into the Barn Restaurant you are required to wear a face covering whilst inside. Please remember to bring one with you. There is limited indoor seating available within the restaurant, with the majority being based outside.
If you have brought a picnic, we recommend enjoying this in the designated picnic area in the meadow near the house, it’s nice and sheltered there whilst underneath the autumnal leaves. Please remember to take your rubbish home with you.
