Sir Richard Edgecumbe was given Cotehele House by Henry VII after proving his loyalty to the King at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. The house, made from local granite, slate and sandstone, is built around three courtyards and is surrounded by extensive woodland. More formal terraced-gardens lead gently down to the River Tamar at the foot of the valley below. It remains one of the most complete Tudor houses in England having undergone hardly any modernisation since the 16th century.
