Details of Cotehele Estate - Engine Cottage
Engine Cottage at Cotehele
Estate in Cotehele
, near Callington sleeps 2 people. Cotehele Estate near Callington is a National Trust Property, with Engine Cottage set on the banks of the River Tamar; Cotehele was the ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family for centuries. This magnificent Tudor house, perched high above the River Tamar, is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture. In the gardens and grounds of Cotehele, you can easily lose yourself exploring this most tranquil and beautiful location. Admire the stunning, formally planted terraces of gorgeous, colourful plants, or wander down to the Valley Garden, which includes a medieval stewpond and dovecote, which in turn leads down to the River Tamar. Sit a while and seek tranquillity in the beautiful Upper Garden and explore the orchards planted with local varieties of apples and cherry trees.
From early spring, bright flowers adorn the grounds and the colourful herbaceous borders are simply stunning in high season. With orchards bearing fruit in the autumn and dainty snowdrops peeking through in winter, there will be horticultural activity all year round. This very popular National Trust property appeals to people of all ages, but Cotehele will be available to guests in early mornings and after the day visitors have gone home.
In the 19th century, local industries boomed and Cotehele Quay bustled with vessels loading and unloading cargo. Paddle steamers came upriver to see the Tamar Valley’s famous blossoming orchards, and small boats carried market-gardening produce back down the river for sale at Devonport Market. The restored sailing barge Shamrock
is moored at the quay and a proper Cornish cream tea can be enjoyed in the Edgcumbe tea room. The Discovery Centre here tells the story of the Tamar Valley, offering a gateway to the wider estate and is just a short walk through the Morden Valley to the sister property Cotehele Mill
. Cotehele welcome dogs and there are some great walks on the miles of paths around the estate, at the quay and in the mill grounds. Dogs are also welcome in the outside seating area of the restaurants. Assistance dogs only are welcome in the house and garden.
Nestling in Danescombe Woods on the banks of the River Tamar, just a short walk along the riverside to the historic village of Calstock. Danescombe Woods is part of the National Trust Cotehele Estate, once a thriving copper mining area. The old ruins of tin mines from last century are scattered through the woodland scenery. The iconic tall chimney stacks can still be seen and Engine Cottage sits below one of these towering above. Set off the beaten track, along a trail through the woods, this is a very tranquil place to cosy up in one of these delightful cottages and relax. For the adventurous, there are some wonderful woodland and riverside walks through to Cotehele House and Gardens. The woodland abounds with wildlife and a little stream runs to the front of the cottages. Calstock is a delightful village, with two pubs and a little village shop, it is very picturesque with its spectacular Victorian railway viaduct spanning the river and still in operation today taking train passengers from Cornwall into Plymouth. The shop, pub and restaurant are 1½ miles from Cotehele Estate near Callington
