As NT members we visited Trerice while in the area. Perhaps we were spoilt by having previously visited Lanhydrock, but we didn't warm to this house as much. It has been altered considerably over time, which makes it difficult to imagine it as it would have been. The rooms are furnished and there are several pieces of interesting art to admire. I particularly enjoyed the embroidery/tapestry, with samples made by volunteers.
The gardens are pretty in the spring, with an orchard, a kitchen garden and some lawned areas with flower borders to explore. The cafe is huge, with additional setting outside. It's hard to imagine there being enough visitors to fill all those seats! There's also a gift shop and plant stall.
The volunteers were present in most rooms, and much as we appreciate them giving up their time, it would have been nice if more of them engaged with visitors (or gave out signals that they were happy to). Some seemed more like wardens than guides, which is a shame as they could really enhance the visitor experience beyond the printed guide we were given at the start of our tour, and which came to an abrupt end before we'd seen the last rooms.
It's definitely worth a visit if you're NT members and in the area.
