Plymouth - Stately Homes of Devon & Cornwall (full day)

Departing Plymouth this morning for the 15 mile drive north of Plymouth brings you to glorious Cotehele House. Nestling into the hillside high above the Tamar River, the house was the home of the Edgcumbe family for several centuries. The mainly granite and slatestone walls contain intimate chambers adorned with sumptuous tapestries, original furniture and armour. Outside, the formal gardens overlook the richly planted valley garden below, with a medieval dovecote, Victorian summerhouse, and 18th century tower above.

After lunch at Cothele, your journey takes you out towards Dartmoor, with its craggy granite tors and heather-strewn moors, on your way to Saltram House.

Saltram House is one of Plymouth’s outstanding attractions. It is a lovely 18th century house built around the remains of a late Tudor mansion. It has one of the grandest neo-classical rooms in Britain with a fantastic collection of paintings by Sir Joshua Reynolds. The house is set in a beautiful garden (used in the 1995 film Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson).
