There was a veritable foodies paradise at one of the Westcountry’s loveliest stately homes at the weekend. More than 40 of the region’s finest producers brought their wares to the Cotehele Christmas Food Fair. Hundreds flocked to the event, which was held over two days.
The food delights included everything from pies, Christmas puddings and artisan cheese to mulled wine, real ales and local cider.
Hannah and Duncan Nobbs from Partridge Farm rare breeds at Tiverton, were in attendance amongst many others including the Cornish Cheese Company, Kernow Chocolate, Cornish Charcuterie, South Western Distillery and Quercus Devon Ales.
The event also saw the official opening of the Saltash house’s beautiful festive garland, the longest erected at any National Trust property.
The floral garland was constructed after one of the best growing seasons in years. It stretches more than 90ft long and features a record number of flowers. The spectacular result can be visited daily throughout December, except Christmas and Boxing Day.
