National Trust Trelissick

A tranquil and varied National Trust garden on the Fal River with a superb collection of tender and exotic plants.


The Fal River is a beautiful setting for Trelissick with many visitors arriving by boat at Trelissick Pontoon each summer.

Starting in a complex of former farm buildings and garden walls, explore this elevated garden with its views of deep wooded valleys and flashes of blue water.

Trelissick sits on its own peninsula in an unspoilt stretch of the Fal River. Picturesque planting is heightened by the folding contours and the informal wooded setting.

There are places in both the sun and the shade to discover a wide range of plants and areas to sit down and recharge your batteries.

There are four summerhouses dotted around the garden, perfect places for picnics, the magical Cryptomeria tree and gorgeous riverside woodland walks to enjoy.

You'll find unique gifts and souvenirs in the art and craft galleries as well as home-cooked snacks and lunches in the bright, airy cafe. On Sunday, you can even enjoy a locally sourced roast dinner in Trelissick's atmospheric barn.
