Trelissick House and Gardens

Trelissick is an estate owned by the National Trust near Falmouth in Cornwall, it consists of a large house with stables and outbuildings, and it’s surrounded by gardens and woodlands :)

When you arrive at Trelissick you’ll pass a Victorian gothic water tower which looks like something from a fairytale. It teases you from behind a high wall, but there’s no access to the public >.>

The main house is only open to visitors on the ground floor but there are some impressive rooms to see, and it really gives you a feel for how grandly the family lived here.

As with a lot of wealthy families in Cornwall the family here grew their fortune in the mining industry, and they became very rich.

Outside the house there a lots of pathways which you can follow for some really nice walks around the grounds.

We picked a circular route and a lot of it was on very easy paths which were mostly flat, so it’s a nice relaxing place to walk around and view all of the many flowers in bloom :)
