Trengwainton's cafe and shop 

Eating and shopping at Trengwainton is a world away from the noise of the high street, whether finding refreshment in the garden café or inspiration for the perfect souvenir in the shop. Plus, we’ve free car parking and a bus stop right outside the gates, so getting here couldn’t be easier. Please note: For the remainder of the 2021 season the cafe will be serving drinks and cakes only.

Before Trengwainton came into the ownership of the Bolitho family in 1867, it was owned by Rose Price, a Cornish magistrate and descendant of a Cornish-Jamaican plantation-owning family.
