The lovely aroma of lavender from the newly planted Ladies' Garden was our first impression of Trerice and we enjoyed the introductory talk on the lawn in front of this beautiful building - yet the inside felt a bit sparse, perhaps because it had never been the Arundel family's main home and lacked that personal touch which is the charm...

We visited this property of NT expecting a lovely garden as so many have in Cornwall. Oh dear, it is drab and needs a lot of work. The maze is a joke and the raised beds are falling to pieces. The house was great, small, but the ceilings are fabulous and the volunteers brilliant. A lot of work is going... More

We most enjoyed a lovely lunch outside on a flat lawn surrounded by kitchen gardens. Sunny and peaceful, delicious food. The house was interesting up to a point. We are NT members and as such did not feel the sting of admission charge. I would revisit this place for the lunch and the gardens but probably not the house so... More

We joined the NT while in Cornwall - and visited Trerice. It's not a large property but nicely presented. Worth the visit...

Just a quick visit. The house is fascinating and is good to see the restoration work on the ceilings. The staff were very friendly and the tearooms up to the usual standard. A must for any NT member visiting Cornwall.

We had a hell of a time getting to the place single track lanes and a ford !!!! But it was worth the trip had a good potter round the place interesting seeing the work in progress - better when done. Being able to put hands on items a change for the NT. Standard fare in the café and shop.... More

We visited and what we saw was very nice, but the two major rooms are not accesable. We also like to see the kitchens in these venues but there weren't any. The entrance fee was quite moderate, presumably because lack of content. The gardens are nice So I'd wait a couple of years

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
