Trerice is a romantic Elizabethan Manor house with fine interiors and delightful gardens just on the outskirts of Newquay, Cornwall. Thanks to long periods under absentee owners, Trerice remains little changed by the advances in building fashions over the centuries.
Today the renowned stillness and tranquillity of Trerice is much prized by visitors. The silence occasionally pierced by shouts of excitement from the bowling green (anyone for a game of Kayling or Slapcock?), bringing back some of the bustle and noise that must have typified its time as a busy manor house.
As a delightful small Elizabethan manor house, Trerice is an architectural gem hidden away from the world in a web of narrow lanes and still somehow caught in the spirit of its age. Behind the Dutch-style gabled facade are ornate fireplaces, elaborate plaster ceilings and a collection of English furniture of the highest quality.
Walk around the beautiful garden and explore the stunning views. Come and see our knot garden as it continues to take shape. Trerice also features a shop, second hand book shop, restaurant and plant sales.
