Visiting Trelissick: what you need to know before you come

View from tennis lawn across the Carrick Roads

The garden, countryside, café, shop, plant sales, second-hand bookshop and Cornwall Crafts gallery are open at Trelissick. The house is closed. We have removed the booking system so you no longer need to book in advance. The mornings are proving to be a popular time to visit so if you are looking to visit at a quieter time we recommend arriving in the afternoon.
