Charming Elizabethan house and gardens. Such a delightful home. Informative guides. Good tea room too, for a cream tea at the end of the visit.

Really interesting place but I would recommend listening to a guide to learn about this interesting house and its residents, before venturing inside.

The National Trust's page for Trerice says: 'Due to the small nature of the garden at Trerice only assistance dogs are welcome in the house and garden. However there are local dog walks at Holywell and Crantock near Newquay.'

There are buses but only every hour and less on a Sunday. It's a good half hour walk from the bus stop at Kestle Mill and mostly up hill! The 25 runs from St Austell to Newquay and the 90 from Truro to Newquay
