Cotehele  Near Saltash.  Owned by the Edgcumbe family for nearly 600 years, the house has evolved from its early origins though retains a medieval atmosphere.  Terraced gardens with pools and a dovecote, a working watermill and adjoining ciderpress as well as contemporary furnishing and objets d'art.  The Victorian river quay with the last Tamar sailing barge "Shamrock" moored alongside, harks back to a busier time on this waterway.  National Trust owned.
