We had a Nadelik Lowen at Trelissick for December 2023 with Father Christmas, local choirs and decorations inspired by a Cornish Christmas. This page will be updated for Christmas 2024 closer to the time.

Christmas opening at Trelissick during December 2023

Trelissick was open daily during December 2023 (closing at 2pm on Christmas Eve and closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day). The house was decorated beautifully and inspired by a Cornish Christmas, there were performances from local choirs and Father Christmas visited at weekends and in the build up to Christmas.

There were plenty of festive gifts in the shop as well as the perfect winter warmers in the barn café and house tearoom. We weren't open during the evenings for 2023 but there was still plenty to get you in the Christmas spirit.

This page will be updated with plans for Christmas 2024 closer to the time.
