Cotehele this half term – visit by train

Hop on the scenic Tamar Valley Line this half term and get the whole family out enjoying nature at the National Trust’s Cotehele.


Little Gardener’s family trail

(Wednesday 7th Feb – Sunday 25th Feb / 10:00 – 16:00)

It’s time for the family to get out in the garden! From Wednesday 7th to Sunday 25th of February, go and try out Cotehele’s Little Gardeners trail. Even in the winter, there are so many things to do to keep the gardens looking tidy and the Cotehele gardeners need your help.

Become a Little Gardener and complete activities such as sowing seeds, smelling herbs, watching birds and finding your very own nature treasures. Can you help get the garden ready for spring?

Note – Once you’ve paid for admission (and, if you’re a National Trust member, you don’t even need to do that), this is a free event.


Getting there
