Historic House
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 renowned stillness and tranquillity of Trerice is much prized by visitors.

Where is Trerice located?

Just outside Newquay, accessible for cars and coaches via Kestle Mill. There are buses to Kestle Mill and Trerice is 3/4 mile from the nearest bus stop.

What is the history of Trerice to the present day?

From the formal Elizabethan knot garden inspired by grand plaster ceilings to the wild meadow and wilderness in the mowhay where wildlife can thrive, the garden at Trerice is small but varied.

What is there to see and do at Trerice?

Visitors can explore the house and learn more about the history of Trerice from knowledgable volunteers. Visit the varied garden and have a go at Tudor games. Enjoy light lunches and cake in the barn restaurant, browse the second-hand bookshop and buy gifts and treats in the shop.
