A behind-the-scenes tour of Cotehele House starting with coffee and followed by a two-course lunch.

This is an in-depth tour of Cotehele House after it has closed for winter. You'll meet the team as they give the house its annual deep-clean, learn about conservation practices and peek behind closed doors. A fair bit of leg-work: chairs are available for one or two of the group to sit on in each of the rooms, but please note that it is a tour around the whole house and involves several sets of stairs.

You might want to bring a torch for 'close inspection' of some elements. Many items will be covered for winter. You'll start with an introductory talk and coffee in the Barn Restaurant, then you'll be taken on a tour of the house, and finally return to the Barn for lunch. 

This event is suitable for ages 14+. Assistance dogs are welcome.
