About Retainers' Court

A converted 15th century cottage near an orchard with mullioned windows overlooking the Cotehele estate.

Stay right in the heart of Cotehele itself at Retainer's Court, a charming 15th-century two-storey building. Re-used as a dairy or still room for the main house in the 18th century, the property has been tastefully converted into a comfortable holiday cottage.



Look out of the cottage’s mullioned windows to a cobbled court leading to Cotehele's ancient chapel. Step outside and head in the other direction to the orchard, filled with daffodils in the spring. You’ll have free, out of hour’s access to the gardens and wider estate of Cotehele, where you’ll be able to explore its network of walking trails.



Explore the wider area in style and board a train on the Tamar Valley Line. Travelling from Plymouth to Gunnislake, enjoy amazing views of the winding river below you.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
