We came here on a warm sunny day and enjoyed walking around the gardens and looking at the entries in the scarecrow competition. The view at the top is well worth the walk which wasn't as bad as we expected. The tea room is also very good but not run by the National Trust.

Easy access for disabled. I was able to tour the entire garden on my mobility scooter. Loved it all. Peaceful and tranquil, lovely views across to St. Michaels Mount, wonderful water garden, The Dell was delightful, plus the walled gardens were very interesting with many varied plants and flowers.

We visited this garden and was glad we fifth. Beautiful garden to wander around, with stunning views from the terrace. Kitchen gardens very interesting, loved the scarecrows made by children from a local school.

We were very lucky as at heritage weekends entry is free. The garden is interesting the views spectacular and we were lucky with the weather as well. Be warned, there's lots of walking and no loos inside the garden. Great to take the dog but a solution to the dog bin problem is urgent. Thoroughly enjoyed lunch. Interesting food, not... More

It is a lovely garden to meander around and some wonderful plants. My wife loved the blue hydrangeas but I got a bit bored because around every corner was...... The views of the coast from the terrace was well worth the trudge up towards the house. The good thing unlike so many National Trust properties was that dogs were allowed... More

A beautifully tended garden where you can get up close to the plants, ferns and trees. Paths meander through heavy planting to create an intimacy that you are unlikely to find in other similar gardens. The view from the terrace is well worth the walled and the walled garden is a delight. The café is privately run but the equal... More

Lovely gardens full of interesting plants. I particularly liked the tree ferns and the walled gardens with the sloping raised beds! Great coastal views from the Terrace (downhill all the way back!)

Having already visited several National Trust properties in Cornwall we were sure Trengwainton would be good but it transpired to be excellent. Not far from Penzance and but not off the beaten track, we found it to be totally dog friendly, even in the formal walled gardens. My goodness! The gardens are superb. Wonderful sub tropical palms, bamboo in abundance,... More

A few years since our last visit and we'd forgotton quite how nice these gardens are. The walled gardens are full of interest and the main gardens are peaceful and very nice. Even on the hazy but warm day we visited, the views form the top of the garden terrace across Mounts Bay were spectacular. Don't miss the excellent tea... More
