I think it must have been at least 50 years since I last went and I was so pleased that it really hasn't changed that much. It is such a pleasure to wander about and soak up the atmosphere, I might be a little biased as I was born just the other side of the river Tamar overlooking Cotehele. The guides were extremely helpful and informative, the gardens are not as tidy and as formal as they used to be but this I think is for the sake of the wild life more than anything, however, there have been many improvements elsewhere. There is the usual shop and garden section where one can purchase plants etc but there did not seem to be much from the Cotehele vegetable garden, I do hope that as the season progresses that will change and the Trust takes full advantage as I for one would purchase the "Home grown" produce. I used the Cafeteria twice and the refreshments were very good and value for money. Well done the National Trust and thank you for a good day out.
