Let's get the good bit over with: Trerice Manor is a lovely small Tudor house, tucked away up narrow winding lanes and has always been worth a visit for the setting and the architecture. However, the NT staff (as sometimes elsewhere) have become unpleasant and unhelpful. One always used to be able to get to the tea room in Trerice... More

A fine Elizabethan Manor House with engaging and knowledgeable volunteers and staff, decent tea room, gardens and NT shop. Compact but well laid out holding the interest of our 14 year old daughter. We are NT members and find the smaller sites have a charm not always present in the larger 'signature' properties. Inside the restoration of the Great Hall... More

Paid entrance of £8.50 for visit to Gardens and Elizabethan House expected a much bigger house so a bit disappointed there was not that much to see also the Gardens were not as we expected but it was a pleasant experience and as it is a National Trust Property it needs supporting

We are NT members but only stayed for a hour. If we had to pay I would be quite disappointed. Activities were £3 extra but as we have a 14 year old, they were not for him. The staff were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The gardens were lovely.

We really enjoyed our time at Trerice, so much so we joined the National Trust there. There were activities for children, of which my son enjoyed the Victorian handwriting. There was a trail for youngsters and toys and chainmaille for them to try on. All in all we had a lovely time.

An enchanting medieval house run by a really enthusiastic bunch of local NT volunteers. Culture in a desert of culture and not to be missed!

Beautiful Old Major house Very caring and responsive guides We found the Garden a Bit boring and less attractive Unfortunately only parts of the rooms Open due to ongoing construction The entrance Fee of 20 £ for a family is far too expensive from our point of view!!

Visited this property while on holiday locally. We joined the tour which lasted about an hour and covered the history of the building as well as the owners over the years, and it was excellent. The chap was an archaeologist and very knowledgeable, he made it for us. Without him we would have walked round in no time as it... More
