Summer of Play at Cotehele

Head to Cotehele this summer for days out jam-packed with fun for all the family.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Play in nature this summer, every day from Saturday 20 July - Sunday 2 September.

What will you do first? Maybe you'll challenge the family to a race around the orchard? Or get creative in the Old Orchard Theatre? Will you become a Nature Detective at Cotehele Mill or build something amazing out of loose parts?

Put your sun hat on and come and make the most of being outdoors this summer. Enjoy an ice cream from The Edgcumbe at the quay, Barn Café and Mill Reception, or relax in a shady picnic spot in the garden or across the estate.

Summer of Play is sponsored by Starling Bank.
