Trelissick is a truely impressive National Trust property; one of Cornwall's premier gardens.

The garden has been planted with an abundance of the tender Asian shrubs that are so characteristic of many gardens in Cornwall - magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons - together with many rare varieties of hydrangea. A new Cornish apple orchard has been established at Trelissick . The gardens feature walks through 500 acres of parkland and riverside woods.

The rolling contours of the gardens, which reach right down to the water's edge can be enjoyed at any time of the year round though the spring blossom is particularly delightful. The house at Trelissick is not open, but there is an art and craft gallery, shop and plant sales, restaurants and a fine Georgian stable block. The old water tower at Trelissick is now a National Trust holiday cottage.
