Drawn to Cotehele

This autumn, come and discover the art and artists of the Tamar Valley with a special exhibition in Cotehele House.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This autumn, Drawn to the Valley and the Bull Pen Gallery are celebrating art inspired by Cotehele and the surrounding countryside.

Visit the Victorian Drawing room (the former gallery) and the East Range lobby to discover work from some of the finest artists currently working in the Tamar Valley.

You might even find a piece to take home with you!

As part of the exhibition, there will also be a special programme of ‘Meet the Maker’ events held at the Bull Pen Gallery, focusing on 3D artists from the Tamar Valley, such as, ceramicists and jewellery makers.

Drawn to Cotehele is a free exhibition, but normal admission applies for non-members.

The exhibition runs daily from 11am to 4pm, between 17 September - 15 October.

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

For non-members parking is £1 for up to 1 hour, £3 for up to 3 hours and £5 for over 3 hours.
