Tranquil varied garden in fabulous position, with a superb collection of tender and exotic plants
On its own peninsula with ever-changing views of the estuary of the River Fal, Trelissick has one of the most amazing natural settings in the country.
There are more than 12 hectares (30 acres) of elevated garden to explore, with twisting paths that lead you through significant collections of hydrangeas, rhododendrons, camellias, ginger lilies and year-round exciting woodland plants.
As well as the garden, the 121-hectare (300-acre) estate, with its countryside, woodlands and coast, makes for breathtaking walks.
As well as the garden and countryside Trelissick has its own renowned art gallery with a wide range of work from local Cornish artists. Why not drop into Crofters café which offers a delicious range of light refreshments, hot luncheons and afternoon cream teas using seasonal and local produce. Trelissick also has a gift shop, second-hand bookshop and six of the best National Trust holiday cottages located around the Trelissick estate.
Get a last glimpse inside Trelissick House, before we close the house for 2014, on 23 December. Take in breath-taking views of the Fal Estuary, wander through rooms and discover a house that remained a family home to the Copelands since it was gifted to the Trust in 1955. In October and November the house is open weekends only. In December the house is open for 'Christmas at Trelissick', Friday to Sunday, 5 - 7 and 12 - 14 December and Friday to Tuesday, 19 - 23 December. Trelissick House will re-open from 1 April 2015.
