Eating and shopping

The shop and tea-room

Secondhand bookshop and gallery

The secondhand bookshop at Trengwainton Garden, Cornwall

The bookshop

The second-hand bookshop is located in the former head gardener's cottage, which is between the orchard and the kitchen garden. We're always in need of books, so if you can help us out, please bring them along during the bookshop's normal opening hours of 11-4, Sunday to Thursday.

The gallery at Trengwainton

The gallery

On the first floor of the former head gardener's cottage is a small gallery containing paintings by local artist Sophie Penstone. Taking much of her inspiration from Trengwainton, Sophie's paintings mean you can take a little bit of the garden home with you to hang on your wall.
