Elizabethan manor house with fine interiors and delightful garden

An intimate Elizabethan manor and a Cornish gem, Trerice remains little changed by the advances in building fashions over the centuries, thanks to long periods under absentee owners.

Today the renowned stillness and tranquillity of Trerice is much prized by visitors.

This silence is occasionally pierced by curious lilts of Tudor music or shouts of excitement from the Bowling Green (surely you will want to try a game of Kayling or Slapcock?), bringing back some of the bustle and noise that must have typified its time as a busy manor house.

Small but mighty

It's easy to lose yourself in this small yet enchanting place. Enjoy the tranquility of Trerice, just a stone's throw from Newquay yet nestled in a peaceful corner of rural Cornwall. Discover the stories of a house and its grounds,steeped in history, an estate diminished by time but as beguiling as ever.
