Cycle Tavistock to Cotehele

Cyclists riding through the Plym Valley.

About us

This nine mile route, following the National Cycle Route 27 signs out of Tavistock, is fairly hilly and is suited to the more experienced cyclist. From Tavistock you will arrive at Cotehele, a tranquil estate belonging to the National Trust. Laze on the quayside and visit the Tudor house perched high above the river Tamar.

With a place to park and lock up your bike in the yard, near the reception, there is opportunity to explore this National Trust estate or relax on the quay with a well-deserved cream tea or ice-cream.

The house is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture. Outside, explore the formally planted terraces, or lose yourself in the Valley Garden, which includes a medieval stewpond and dovecote and leads down to the river.
