About Trerice

A delightful small Elizabethan manor house with fine interiors and delightful garden, Trerice is an architectural gem hidden away from the world in a web of narrow lanes and still somehow caught in the spirit of its age.

Trerice remains little changed by the advances in building fashions over the centuries, thanks to long periods under absentee owners. Behind the Dutch-style gabled facade are ornate fireplaces, elaborate plaster ceilings and a collection of English furniture of the highest quality.

Today the renowned stillness and tranquillity of Trerice is much prized by visitors. Walk around our beautiful garden and explore the stunning views. Come and see our knot garden as it continues to take shape. Trerice also features a shop, tea-room and second-hand bookshop.


Due to the small nature of the garden at Trerice only assistance dogs are welcome in the property. However, there are local dog walks at Holywell and Crantock near Newquay.

What Visitors Say

"Nice well run property. Small and easy to get round. The knot garden is a nice place for lunch. The house is interesting to look round. Our kids loved running round the grass turf mazes."
"This is a wonderful place. Staff were super friendly. We really enjoyed the gardens and the house. There were traditional games for the whole family to enjoy. The house was stunning. We really enjoyed hearing facts from the staff. My 3 year old and 8 year old had a great day."
"A small house and garden, but beautifully planted and in a peaceful, calm setting full of colour and wildlife. The house is full of history and the guides have fabulous stories to share. Lots of space for kids to run and play, with the added bonus of two turf mazes."
