Cotehele House & mill Cornwall

Between Saltash and Gunnislake, this property is well worth a half day visit when you have had enough of the A30 or A38. The roof of the main hall is a gem. The wheelwright's shop must be one of the most comprehensive collections of wheelwright equipment anywhere, mostly transferred from a local workshop in use until the mid C20th. The 1st NT property where photography is positively encouraged, wheee....look on
