House is well look after with lots of helpers very committed and knowledgable. Gardens nice and lengthy of open space after the house to enjoy. House takes 30 mins max but you can spend nice couple of hours here. Recommended esp if you have NT membership

Lovely NT property - visited several times. Garden was really nice, especially the newly laid lavender garden. Sadly on our visit the great hall - the largest and most grand room of the house - was closed for restoration. Perhaps for non NT members there could have been a reduction in the admission fee as much of the house was... More

I visited here years ago and it was very similar all these years later in a good way. Not the biggest property but still well presented. Nice big cafe and art work was on display for sale at one end when we visited. They have a second hand book shop and a room called the loft i think where there... More

Lovely house and gardens. Went here as we recently had a national trust card and was at a loose end as to what to do. Glad we did. Enjoyed it. I don't think it's a whole day out but it is worth checking out

Visited on our way back to holiday rental after visiting Newquay. Lovely house with developing grounds. Was planning a fairly short visit, but found a talk from one of the volunteers about to start, expecting the 'usual' 10-15 minutes, we joined. Wrong! What we got was a highly entertaining hour and a half with Andy, a really enthusiastic and knowledgeable... More

Really lovely house and garden close to Newquay run by The National Trust .Definitely worth spending an afternoon there - it's quite small so you don't need to dedicate a lot of time to looking round but it is worth sitting in the garden and having a cup of tea as it really is a lovely relaxing place.

We went to Trerice late in the afternoon as a 'gap filler' before going back to our lodgings for dinner. What a little gem! Small, perfectly formed and absolutely fascinating. Such knowledgeable staff who were keen to explain the history of the property and also the ongoing repair work to one of the chimneys. PHOTO TIP- walk down the path... More

A very interesting Elizabethan house, with unusual design for its time. When I visited, access to the Great Hall was impossible, due to conservation works to the ceiling, although it was permitted to look through the doorway to see the beautiful plaster ceiling which was being repaired. The volunteers are very helpful, and it is well worth listening to the... More
