Trerice House in Newquay is a charming Elizabethan Manor House and part of the National Trust.
If you’re looking to fill a morning or afternoon, and love exploring English country houses, well this one is for you. Don’t forget your picnic blanket and a book!
Check out this beautiful house and garden that has a cracking year round program of events.
Take a look around…
Small but mighty and with an interesting history, Trerice House only takes about an hour to explore but it’s perfect to slot into a day’s adventure.
The manor house is extremely well preserved with few changes to the building and interior. This is thanks to the owners leaving it unchanged or empty for large periods of time. We are so lucky to be able to see it like this!
Make sure you find this incredible view out across the main hall. It was my favourite part of the whole house and my imagination ran riot as I planned a feast with all my friends on that long table by the huge open fireplace.
There’s also plenty of plants on display that you can also buy. We came home with a new plant baby, which is such a nice memory of our day out here.
The house also has a beautiful barn where you can get some delicious food and cake. I’m not sure how the National Trust do it, I’ve been to so many of its sites now and, I can’t help be be impressed at always being able to get a cracking piece of cake and cup of tea.
Overall Trerice is a very nice, quiet place to visit for a gentle afternoon. If you’re embracing a slower pace of life, take a book and a picnic blanket and enjoy the garden for a while, it’s so peaceful.
We spent a lovely afternoon enjoying the house and reading in the gardens enjoying the summer sun. We even made a friend…
One of my favourite things about Trerice House is the fantastic year round program of events it hosts. I’m envious if you live locally, there’s so much on I would love to go to.
Luckily during our time in Cornwall there were some events on at the house. Later in the evening we returned for a stargazing event put on by a local astronomy group. It was a great evening and made wonderful use of the gardens, annex and barn. I’ve never seen the moon so clearly, it was such a lovely experience.
