Picnic spots at Trerice

Visitors enjoying a picnic in the garden.

There are plenty of places in the Trerice garden to relax with a picnic but here are a few of the best spots.


This undercover spot has it all: a fantastic view of the knot garden and house as well as shelter from the elements. Aim for the summerhouse if you are in a small group who’d like to sit back in the shade.


Kayling lawn and parade ground

The highest parts of the garden these spots can get windy but both have wide views of the estate that Trerice once was. There are benches dotted around but this is a good place to spread out the blankets and the toilets are close by.

The mowhay

A turf maze has been cut into the grass. With picnic benches and lots of space this is a great place to spot to stop, open from June until mid-September. This spot is a bit further from the facilities at Trerice.
