What a lovely, peaceful house to visit. Dates before Tudor times, so very atmospheric. Rooms well furnished, with a helpful booklet to carry around with you, plus Guides who are happy to chat and give you more history. Secluded garden, terrace, good restaurant and shop. Much enjoyed our visit.

A gem of a national trust property hidden away in the lanes of Cornwall. Make sure if you can you arrive in time for an introductory talk on the lawn. A very informative and entertaining insight into the house and it's owners from a enthudiastic and knowledgable gentleman from nt. Times were 11.30, 12.30 and 2.30. The house is small but there is lots to see and some really interesting Tudor features and paintings. We finished our Sunday visit with a delightful roast beef Sunday lunch good value and tasty for a £7.95 price tag. On a nicer day there are lovely gardens to wander through but on a slope so not suitable for all. Free entrance to the gardens would be a nice pit stop on a sunny day.

A really lovely National Trust attraction. Friendly and helpful staff and volunteers. The house is beautifully presented. The coffee shop is well worth a visit. We have been twice now. But next time we're down that way we will go back again. It's free for national trust members.

This National Trust property is surely one of the gems of North Cornwall. Located in the depths of the countryside, Trerice is worth seeking out. It is an interesting example of Elizabethan architecture that has survived the centuries. Although some restoration has taken place, the house is largely as originally built. Like many National Trust properties, Trerice is blessed with a lovely tea room, with Cornish cream teas a speciality. We must admit that, as NT members we didn't have to pay an admission charge, so the non-members admission charge could be a deterrent for families.

This special event was an evening at Trerice by candle light as part of the house has no electricity.
We first went to the barn, also in candle light, and had a very enjoyable and relaxing meal. After we toured the house which was a really interesting experience by candle light.
