The Christmas flower garland at Cotehele

When the residents of Cotehele first hung a modest Christmas display in the hall in the 1950s, little did they know how their simple decoration would turn into the magnificent tradition it is today.

  • Booking not needed

This year the Christmas garland has 32,000 flowers, all grown on the estate. Join us to admire this 60ft-long masterpiece in the Great Hall. The garland will be on display from 16 November - 5 January (closed 25 - 26 December).

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
