Description
An intimate Elizabethan manor and a Cornish gem, Trerice remains little changed by the advances in building fashions over the centuries, thanks to long periods under absentee owners. Today the ... Read more
renowned stillness and tranquillity of Trerice, much prized by visitors, is occasionally pierced by the curious lilts of Tudor music or shouts of excitement from the Bowling Green (surely you will want to try a game of kayling or slapcock?), bringing back some of the bustle and noise that must have typified its time as a busy manor house.

Accessible via a narrow country lane, Trerice is a Elizabethan manor house located in Kestle Mill, just outside Newquay. A National Trust property, it's small, but has an interesting collection of paintings and period furnishings. The attractive landscaped gardens are fun to explore and there's a lovely little café. Inside the barn, there is a play area where children are given the opportunity to dress up in Elizabethan clothing. The staff are welcoming and happy to answer any questions about the history of the house.

A picturesque Elizabethan manor house, near Newquay. The house is nice to look at and take photos of, with its Tudor exterior, and the gardens are really good too. When I visited there were some traditional lawn games laid out in one section of the garden, which was a fun way to bring to life how people might have spent their time at Trerice in the past.
