Around Cotehele

A day off work but not the best weather, I decided not to head up to Dartmoor but instead to head to a National trust property and do a loop around the grounds. I chose Cotehele mainly because there it at least some tree cover in case the forecasted rain fell. As it was, the rain had left earlier than planned and the walk was at least dry and heading west and inland a bit was a good plan as it was still drizzling in Plymouth when I got back.
