Enjoy the beautiful, colourful garden full of year-round interest, winding paths, luscious trees and stunning views. Find all four of the summerhouses and enjoy open spaces to relax, play and get close to nature.
Explore the extensive woodland walks around the estate looking out to quiet creeks and big ships or spend some time at the beach.
Reward yourselves with lunch or afternoon tea from the restaurant and take home a special souvenir from the shop or art and craft gallery.
Set at the top of the estate, with fabulous views of the water is Trelissick house with its distinctive columns. Remodelled by Thomas Daniell in 1825, this facade represented wealth and status and you can experience tales of its past through the exhibitions.
More recently Trelissick was the much loved home of the Copeland family of Spode-Copeland china fame and an exhibition will feature Ida Copeland as part of the National Trust’s Women and Power programme.
