Small NT property finished looking around in 45min. Dont do it as the only thing in a day as you will be disappointed. The food in the cafe was excellent, both myself and my wife really enjoyed the roast beef and would recommend to anyone.

We decided to go to Treruce as it was raining today. However when we got there it had stopped. Had an interesting talk by a National Trust guide who was very knowledgable and told us all about the history of the house. Great cafe and although small we found the house very interesting. Pretty well kept gardens

My business trip to Cornwall included a conference dinner at this venue. It was definitely a highlight. The venue is impressive, the food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We were given a brief tour and explanation of the history of the property - but i must go back for a proper look around and to see the gardens... More

Loved this National Trust property. Quite small, but well worth the visit. Lovely gardens and a new one being developed at the moment. Great cafe too in a spectacular barn.

Gardens quiet at this time of year and quite small but house lovely - one you could actually live in. History well presented and guides as ever very knowledgeable.

My wife and I recently visited Trerice whilst staying in Cornwall, and even though it's fairly small in National Trust terms, it's very interesting and well worth the visit. We arrived on a wet rainy afternoon so did not expect to see much of the outside, but believe it or not we opted for the outside tour being conducted by... More

We visited here with our 7 year old daughter who loves history and it was well worth it. The house is beautiful, the gardens lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. There were treasure trails for our daughter too, and we were lucky in that there was an event on where you could dress up in Tudor clothing. Really... More

During a short break we decided to visit Trerice NT property just outside Newquay in Cornwall. The property is an old Tudor manor house that was left to the trust in 1953 by the owners at that time. As you walk through the rooms there are some interesting features such as the may windows in the great hall (576 I... More
