As part of the celebrations for Christmas at the exquisite medieval manor house of Cotehele, volunteers construct an immense flower garland to hang in the great hall. 6o feet long and comprising some 40,000 dried flowers, it takes 10 days to assemble in the barn before going on display in the house, and the flowers are grown and dried on site earlier in the year. Garlands have been a feature of midwinter here for over 60 years, so it’s a well established custom and you can view the garland during the normal winter opening hours for the house. The property is in the care of the National Trust.
The cafe is open over the winter season and there are also numerous musical and other festive events at the house – check the National Trust website link below for full details. The property is open daily but only parts of the house are open during the winter.
