National Trust property

This is a nice National Trust property. It is not too big so easy to get around. There are various events, through the season and good for all ages.

We often go to Trerice as we live in Newquay, just to walk around the gardens and have a cup of coffee etc. It's lovely.

We booked for David Chapman's Wildlife Lecture and personally I was a little apprehensive about it, but it was definitely worth the money! The food was great and as vegetarians we were cautious about what we was going to get but we were pleasantly surprised! Staff were lovely and helpful, and all the facilities were available. Highly recommend the events... More

We visited this in September last year after joining the NT - as it was pretty close by. Lovely building - smaller than a lot but very handy for Newquay and well worth the time taken to visit.

Wow what a mint evening, for Halloween, we visited this national trust property in the dark, no lights just torches! The staff all dressed up to scare for this special Halloween event. Wonderfully staged, and the women with scary eyes who jumped out of a mirror, was well funny, watching other people getting a fright! Brilliant fun, just walking around... More

On the afternoon that we visited, we were offered the opportunity, with others, to spend an hour or so with the Archaeologist, on a guided tour around the outside of the buildings, during which he pointed out many features, which would have otherwise been overlooked. He then related these to the many stages of the development of the site since... More

This is quite a small property and garden, but it has some lovely features and is well worth a visit. The staff were very helpful and informative and the Tea rooms were good

OK, this is not the largest of properties or gardens you could visit courtesey of the National Trust. But it has a charm of its own. We found the staff friendly and keen to pass on their knowledge and particulary enjoyed trying on some armour. Lovely refreshments at the cafe, although a bit pricey, (as was the shop).
