Trelissick House and Gardens – National Trust

National Trust Trelissick House and Gardens.

A short walk around the National Trust’s Trelissick gardens and house on Saturday 12th of October 2019. A rather dull and overcast day where we had limited time. The gardens and the woodland walk to the river is one of the great attractions.

Trelissick House Solarium

Trelissick House Solarium

The sight of the large ocean-going laid up shipping that you glimpse through the trees is always a surprise.  The numbers of ships vary dramatically with world trade economics.  You can walk down through the woods to King Harry Ferry.

The house is now being restored and the Solarium which was built in the 1930s is magnificent and a personal favourite.

Currently, the house is open from 11 am to 5 pm (last entry 4.30 pm) every day. The showrooms are on the ground floor only, guided tours of the upper floors and cellars are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Use the link below to check before a visit.


Only assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens.  There are however miles of field and woodland walks where dogs are welcome. There livestock grazing so when close to the livestock please keep your dog on a lead and under control, otherwise, they are free to run around.  You can read more here.  The cafe courtyard area is dog-friendly with water bowls and sheltered seats.

Lunch at the cafe was excellent with a hot bowl of Chilli with a chunk of bread.
