This charming house with its compact grounds is quite a small NT property but if period houses are one of your interests, then it's worth venturing out from Newquay. It's set in some lovely countryside and as a house, has some interesting history and a very intimate and warm feel. Just enough rooms open to hold your interest and a... More

Free parking (with electric car free charging point), not to far to walk to the house and helpful staff. We arrived and only had to wait under 10 mins to join the free history talk provided by one of the NT members, on the front lawn. It was a 10 min speech (just about the right length of time). Great... More

Really nice feel to the house and gardens. Just a couple of rooms open downstairs in the house but quite a few upstairs. Lots of volunteers keen to share their knowledge of the house. Gardens only small but nicely planted. Good sized café, I got discount as a green visitor because I had walked from Newquay. No discount for seniors... More

Had a really good visit despite the atrocious weather. The children were kept entertained and educated by the Easter trail and we really enjoyed looking round the house and gardens. Would be nice to come back with a picnic when the weather is better.

Trerice is a National Trust run property, entry is free if you are a member but if not the price is £7.65 per adult. There is on site parking. The house itself is not huge and doesn't take too long to look around, however, the outside is lovely. The gardens are well laid out, and are very interesting. There is... More

House and gardens small and contact, very sweet. Great cafe with hot shines from the oven. Bizarrely bad art in the little gallery. Peaceful gardens, lovely place to spend an hour. The volunteers in the house were more chatty than in other NT places which was nice but one jumped on me in fear I was going to damage the... More

Really enjoyed our visit here. It's not the largest NT property but it is a really great example of a family home, in many ways more personal than many others. There's plenty to see, the staff are very welcoming and helpful, and the new policy of letting you touch more and get closer to the contents makes it less of... More

This is a wonderful house near Newquay with lots to see. The staff are excellent and we learned a lot about the house from their talk. They are very passionate about Trerice and brought it to life for us.

We'd just been to visit another attraction nearby (Lappa Valley Railway) and were on the way home and came across this place. It's beautiful and quaint. The house looks very big on the outside, but quite small on the inside. The staff were lovely and gave our little boy a trail to complete where he had to find hidden swallows... More

Small but gorgeous house in beautiful quiet countryside. Full of interest, great plasterwork and some especially wonderful pieces of stumpwork on display. Friendly volunteers. Pretty gardens. Excellent shop. I enjoyed the opportunity to try brass rubbing and saw that there were various games that people could try. Obviously a much-loved NT property with thought taken to make it as appealing... More
