We were greeted on our entry to Trerice by the first of an excellently dressed period character and this really set the tone for a fantastic evening. On entry into the restaurant housed in the old barn (which was so appropriate for a Tudor Banquet) we were given china goblets of mulled wine or apple juice which was a nice... More

Great venue brilliant entertainment but the food was disappointing cold corn fritters and rubbery xmas puddings! It was a shame the tour of the house included modern ladders and decorating equipment.

A lovely little national trust property, won't take long to get round it but it's well kept and interesting all the same!

Great things come in small packages and this sums up Trerice. We had a great day out here and thoroughly enjoyed the whole place. It is so cute. The cafe is lovely and all the staff we met were very welcoming.

Trerice was by no means the reason we were in the area, but I couldn't be happier that we stopped. The volunteers who work there obviously enjoy their work and engaging with the guests who come through, even two adults like us who *really* wanted to wear the historical reproductions and take a picture holding this artifact or that one....

One of the smaller National Trust properties to visit but as always an enjoyable time out. Lovely gardens with ample picnic surroundings, this particular property had big chunky hexagonal picnic benches, great for families on their day out. It is always a pleasure to visit the National Trust and tick them off your list as you go along.

Ten years or so ago, we visited and found a pleasant place to have a quick look around, house and garden. It's changed so much in the presentation that we nearly didn't recognise it - the volunteer guides literally bring it to life with their description of life long ago and of the domestic circumstances that pertained back then; food...

Trerice is beautiful! It's unspoiled by interactive bits and pieces but it does have the most wonderful volunteers who bring the past to life. The volunteers are not snooty like some national trust volunteers we have encountered - they are down to earth people who love this house and all of it's history! We will definitely be back next year!

A small country house with lovely grounds and lots of interesting things going on - this is well worth a visit. Theres also a shop, second hand book stall, plant sakes and a cafe.
