Here is a rare chance to stay in the very heart of a truly ancient house. Although Cotehele is largely Tudor, Hall Court occupies the oldest part of the building and is thought to date back to the 15th century. This traditionally furnished, first-floor apartment has mullioned windows looking down into the grassed courtyard below. You are in the midst of life in Cotehele, with its magical atmosphere, yet with the privilege of being able to retire to your private rooms at any moment. Visitors staying in Hall Court have access to Cotehele's garden at all times.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you’ll be set for life!

    Haven for wildlife

    We found all the staff very friendly and helpful, e.g. giving us train times from Calstock to Plymouth or ideas for excursions. The little extra touches in the flat - e.g. milk and biscuits and even a welcome card from the caretaker - make all the difference and we felt very welcome. We liked the shop very much - a lovely selection of things to buy - but sadly no postcards of Cotehele House! It was wonderful to actually stay in such an historic building. The gardens are a special place, a haven for wildlife and the birdsong and spring trees and flowers - especially the bluebells - were a delight. It was great to have the gardens to ourselves after closing time.

    Enjoyed our stay

    Table in the lounge was unstable and the sofa wasn't comfortable. Bed however was very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was great to have a wonderful property all to ourselves and wander the grounds freely when no one else was there. We were the only people staying and it was wonderful. Very peaceful.

    Lovely walks
