When the residents of Cotehele first hung a modest, floral, Christmas display in the hall in the 1950s, little did they know how their simple decoration would turn into the magnificent and famous tradition it is today.

Wednesday 1 November - Friday 10 November
The Cotehele garland is made of between 20,000 and 40,000 flowers all grown and dried throughout the year on the estate. You're welcome to watch the gardeners build their masterpiece

Saturday 11 November - Saturday 6 January
The garland is complete, the log fire is burning - join us to admire this 60ft-long masterpiece in the Great Hall and enjoy a variety of local choirs and groups performing under it. Booking essential, details to follow.
