Trelissick House is now open 5 days a week

For the first time this summer Trelissick House is opening its doors to visitors five days a week, Wed - Sun, until 28 Sep, 10.30am - 5.30pm.

Take a long-awaited peek into previously closed rooms, see furniture, paintings and ceramics recently acquired from the Copeland family and take in the far-reaching views.

Pack a picnic

With rolling hills, dramatic countryside, landscaped gardens, beaches and many a bench, there's no shortage of picnic spots in the South West.

Visit a tea-room if you fancy a little something extra, or if the weather takes a turn for the worst.

Many gardens in the South West are considered beautiful in their own right. Some have an added element and in addition to their gorgeous surroundings host impressive displays of art.

We're dog friendly

Days out can be tricky when you've got a four-legged friend to consider. Of course dogs are part of the family, and many of our places are dog-friendly so you don't need to leave your pooch at home.
