Trerice is like the Goldilocks NT property, not too big, not too small, just right. The house is laid out over two floors and the self guided tour is a mix of history and artifacts. The guides know their stuff and given the chance are happy to weave you the threads of a rooms story. The tearoom is better than... More

This is a very attractive ‘E’ shaped Elizabethan manor house with lots of features in the rooms including stucco ceilings and stucco mouldings above fireplaces, although not all rooms seemed to be on show. The room guides were very friendly and welcoming, and keen to impart their knowledge to enhance the visitors experience. There are formal and informal gardens in... More

We enjoyed the hours spent at Trerice-it's not as big as some of the National Trust properties but has all the usual qualities-shop etc. Although some of Poldark has been filmed here there is little evidence of where - it was hard to correspond the home/gardens with the T.V even allowing for editing.

I Reviewed Trerice once as nice gardens nothing much else. Since then I have visited Trerice a dozen times, as a keen photographer I go back to take pictures of the gardens which seems different every time I go. The restaurant does the best Sunday lunch, it's not the fastest but you don't get over cooked veg, the Portions are... More

NT volunteer staff were wonderful, the lady who gave us a brief (30mins) history of the property from it origins to modern day. How part of the building had become damaged and how it was restored using original stone from a local mine, that was reopened for that purpose alone. The gardens were neat and tidy, loads of activities for... More

A little jewel in the Cornish countryside, not the biggest or grandest but soooo pretty. Cream teas in their cafe are good and not too expensive.

An unusual National Trust house approached down narrow country lanes near Newquay. Owned by the Trust for over 60 years but without endowment funding takes much effort to finance. Sad the lawn mower museum was removed and outbuilding not put to better use. Also disappointed today by the unfriendly room stewards. Even when spoken to it was difficult to elicit... More

Interesting and fun for all ages. Games and information both indoors and out and on school days plenty of space to wander about. Usual NT fare WITH tables in and out (some tables at rear of cafe). Picnics do not appear to be encouraged and no space near cars.

We are National Trust members and, therefore, didn't have to pay the entrance fee, but we thought the amount of rooms on show was poor value for visitors who did. Compared to other National Trust houses, Trerice, only has a few rooms opened to view. Some of the artefacts are extremely interesting, so our advice is not to rush when... More

We have two small boys but were made very welcome. The volunteers encouraged us to go into the house although we declined. There was a dragon trail for children to follow and even though we hadn't found them all . The boys were awarded with stickers. There was a costume box in one of the out buildings and our boys...
