Cotehele : KOESHEYL in the Cornish Language (Possibly "The Creek in the Woods") originating circa 13oo stands overlooking the River Tamer in North east Cornwall, this river separates Cornwall from the County of Devon. The main building phases took place between 1485 - 1520 and it is the least altered Tudor building in the UK. Walking down the valley through the woods past the ancient stone Dove Cote you reach the Quay on the River Tamer, where there is one of the old Tamer Barges on Display. and the old boat workshops and storage areas can be seen. The inside of Cotehele is truly spectacular, but unfortunately no photography is allowed inside the buildings. So have tried to give a feel what can be seen around the Grounds, A visit to Cotehele is a very rewarding experience
