This is the Great Hall of Cotehele House with its typical Tudor wooden ceiling and walls decorated with trophies and armour. The house became the residence of the Edgecumbe family in 1485 after Henry VII rewarded Sir Richard's loyalty during the Battle of Bosworth.
A tower was added in the 17th century, which accommodated Charles I when he visited here in the 1640s. The family chapel dates back to the 15th century and contains the oldest working domestic clock in the country. Cotehele remains one of the most complete Tudor houses in England having undergone hardly any modernisation.
