The National Trust’s Cotehele House in South East Cornwall has wonderful gardens that are a joy to behold in the summer.
The terraced garden has a subtle colour palette of blues, pinks, whites and purples.
The cutting garden has delightful heavenly scented sweet peas, dahlias and the everlasting flowers that are used in Cotehele’s famous winter garland that hangs in the grand hall at Christmas.
A bare piece of land in the valley jungle has been planted with pretty meadow flowers.
Cotehele House, Gardenes, Quay and Mill can be found on Cornish side of the upper reaches of the river Tamar, and is a delight to visit at any time of year, although the house is mainly closed in the winter apart from the garland viewing.
