It's a truly magical Christmas this year at Trelissick, the illuminations from dusk onwards light the way through the garden to the festively adorned house. Festive fairies have taken up residence in the house's many Christmas trees and Father Christmas' reindeer are even paying a visit to the stables.
Find the time to wind your way through 300 years of Trelissick history, as you discover the timeline of the estate and the families that have made and lost fortunes, managed the land, sailed the sea, fought Fascism and championed Cornwall.
There's 30 acres of woodland garden, with meandering paths that take you on a journey through evergreens, palms, flowering shrubs and borders bursting with exotic colour, and breath-taking views around every corner.
The beach at the bottom of the parkland is perfect for skimming stones and finding sea creatures under the rocks. With woodland walks beside the river you can spot the wildlife and sea birds.
Why not drop into Crofters cafe or the house kitchen for a delicious range of light refreshments and afternoon cream teas?
Trelissick also has a shop with plant and gardening center, art gallery, second-hand bookshop and six of the best National Trust holiday cottages located around the estate.
There's year round events so you can do more on your day out.
