Even towards the end of September there is a lot of colour in the garden. The plants and trees are beautiful. There are plenty of seats dotted around the garden. I sat and enjoyed the birdsong in one shady area and the view over Mounts Bay from the terrace. There is quite an art in maintaining gardens so that they still look natural and the Trengwainton gardeners have achieved this. Even though the gardens are popular it is possible to get away from other visitors and really enjoy the peace. There is a cafe in the grounds - the coffee and scones are excellent!

Really enjoyed looking around the gardens (didn't go into the house). Interesting to see the kitchen gardens and the scarecrows were really good fun. Lovely way to spend an afternoon. Kitchen isn't great though, so I'd advise taking a picnic especially if you have any dietary requirements.

Queued to park on Friday, only to find everyone was queuing to turn around as the gardens were closed. We love visiting Trengwainton but had no idea that it is closed on Fridays and Saturdays. Very disappointing. It was a long drive and it seems mad to be closed any time during the peak summer season.

Managed to find a gap in the August showers to visit this charming place. The layout was lovely and laid back, with little points of interest and activities throughout (don’t miss the scarecrows if you need a good laugh). Bits of the garden looked like they needed a bit of TLC but the majority was well kempt and interesting. Claire in the gift shop has a fab sense of humour as well. We really enjoyed our little trip here!

No holiday that we can take in England is ever complete for us without a visit to a National Trust property: especially as we are Members. This holiday in Mousehole was no exception. In fact today we had already visited St. Michael’s Mount and we then we drove the 5 miles westwards along the coast and then inland to this NT property on the mid-northern town boundary of Penzance.

On our arrival, the generous main carpark was full and we had to park further-away in the overspill carpark. The walk to the entrance to the gardens was not much further and we were quickly checking-in.

The gardens here have two main sections; near to the entrance there are formal gardens and secreted within is the Café, where we stopped for a light lunch and good cups of tea and coffee. Along the way we were particularly pleased to see the Fuchsia Garden and the Middle Walled Garden.

We then took the full woodland walk, the shelter from the strong and very warm sunshine was particularly welcomed. The walk follows, and crosses, a stream for most of its way to the end. There are seats to take breaks along the path. At the end of the path there are fabulous views from the lawns in front of Trengwainton House. The house is private and the are pathways with ‘Private’ signs to be obeyed. The view of Mount's Bay, which must be near to two miles east of the house, is very beautiful. We sat in a little wooden gazebo and took a break before turning back and thence, via the private roadway back to the entrance.

This was a rewarding, peaceful and pleasant visit, and thoroughly recommended.
