TRURO Cornwall TR3 6LQ
As we enter the glorious season of spring, we’ve decided to take a look at one of the beautiful National Trust gardens situated near our Falmouth resorts. The Trelissick Garden is vast, with many paths to wander that make for a great day out for you and your family. The daffodils are blooming, along with many other flowers dotted along the flower beds, the birds are flying around, with many to spot, and you may even see a squirrel or two darting along the fields to climb up the tall, tall trees.
The grand Trelissick home was established in the 1750’s and you can walk the grounds around it and marvel at its architecture. The breath-taking views of the Fal estuary in the distance aren’t half bad either! There is also a shop, where you can pick up unique, artistic keepsakes or gardening gear to take back home with you.
If you fancy taking the adventure a little further, make your way around the woodland walks to marvel at the old trees and spot animal footprints in the soft mud. Make your way through the historic parkland, along with the creek that is framed with oak trees, to the fort and quay at Roundwood. With spectacular views, everyone in the family, including your four-legged friend, will enjoy the easy-going trek through this secret walking trail. For more information and handy directions be sure to check out the National Trust website to help guide you. After your walks around the garden, head to the cafe for a range of local and delicious foods to fuel the family.
There are also many events happening at the garden throughout spring, from Mother’s Day activities to daffodil shows for you to enjoy during your holiday to this idyllic part of Cornwall. If you head to Falmouth for your Easter breaks in Cornwall then be sure to head to Trelissick where the Easter bunny has been leaving treats all around the estate and learn all about the history of the Trelissick home and garden. You can pick up a map from the stable yard, from Saturday 1st April to Monday 17th April, from 10:30 am to 4 pm to join in the hunt. At a cost of only £2.50 per child, plus normal admission charges to enter the grounds, this can be a great way to keep the kids entertained all day!
