Rainy day fun at Cotehele

Children splashing in the rain

Even when it’s raining there’s still lots to do at Cotehele.

In the manor house

From November 10 - January 6 we're displaying the Commemoration Garland in the Great Hall, inside the beautiful medieval manor house at Cotehele. Children could look for the First World War postcards woven into the artwork or try to spot all the different creatures which live at Cotehele and are shown in the giant collage.

Also indoors

In Brewery Books by the house you'll find children's crafts on various dates through December. Children will be able to make cards and postcards inspired by the Commemoration Garland.

At the quay

Down at the quay the wonderful Discovery Centre is filled with hands-on activities to help children find out about nature and the wildlife around Cotehele. In here there are lots of interesting facts about Shamrock, the barge being repaired on the quayside. If you are feeling nautical, you can have a go at tying knots in here too.

And if that's not enough, why not pull on the wellies and see how many puddles you can splash in as you walk around the beautiful estate, or pick up the festive family trail and have fun in the garden?


A rainy day? Bring it on…
