Last week on the spur of the moment ( and a good weather forecast ) we packed up and headed down to Cornwall, about a 3 hour car journey. With our trusty National Trust membership cards we decided to visit as many properties we could squeeze in. This is what the National Trust has to say about the property of Trelissick….
Tranquil varied garden in fabulous position, with a superb collection of tender and exotic plants
“On its own peninsula with ever-changing views of the estuary of the River Fal, Trelissick has one of the most amazing natural settings in the country. There are more than 12 hectares (30 acres) of elevated garden to explore, with twisting paths that lead you through significant collections of hydrangeas, rhododendrons, camellias, ginger lilies and year-round exciting woodland plants. As well as the garden, the 121-hectare (300-acre) estate, with its countryside, woodlands and coast, makes for breathtaking walks.As well as the garden and countryside Trelissick has its own renowned art gallery with a wide range of work from local Cornish artists. Why not drop into Crofters café which offers a delicious range of light refreshments, hot luncheons and afternoon cream teas using seasonal and local produce. Trelissick also has a gift shop, second-hand bookshop and six of the best National Trust holiday cottages located around the Trelissick estate”
A beautiful setting with the best view over the River Fal imagine having morning coffee here !
Lovely shady secret places
Because of the mild temperatures many species thrive…
Imagine working in the secondhand bookshop in this beautiful cottage…..
