Trerice

Trerice is a Tudor manor house near Newquay in Cornwall which has been owned by the National Trust since 1953.

The house was restored when the National Trust purchased it and it’s now a very nice Elizabethan house to look around :)

There are gardens and orchards around the house in its grounds, and Tudor lawn games for you to try out for yourself ;P

Inside the main hall Y’ and I had far too much fun trying on lots of different types of period style armour….I think between us we tried on nearly every peace ^_^;

It’s surprising how heavy some of the helmets are though ;>.>

Around the rest of the house there are lots of interesting rooms to see, and there is a lot of really impressive original plaster work on the ceilings.

I don’t think we’ve been to many houses of this period, so it was really great to go see it whilst we were in the area ^^
