Christmas is a magical time at Cotehele. There are loads of things to see and do with plenty of eating and shopping choices to keep everyone happy.

Celebrating 60 years of the garland

Would you help us celebrate the garland's 60th anniversary? In honour of its diamond year, the gardeners have given it a 'diamond' look. The 60ft garland, with its 31,200 flowers, will adorn the Tudor hall in the House until 31 December (closed Christmas and Boxing Day).
