Trelissick Gardens owned by the National Trust in Cornwall

This blog post is all about Trelissick Gardens owned by the National Trust located in Feock, near Truro, in Cornwall.

National Trust membership

My boyfriend and I are members of the National Trust and, because we are aged between 18-25 we get a young persons membership. This only costs is £36 each for the year, well worth it to cover all the car parking! 

Being a part of the National Trust we receive letters in the post telling us what was going on in Cornwall. Trelissick Gardens were advertising a snow drop trail. Seeing it was such a beautiful day we decided to go and have a look.

Snow drop trail

The snow drop trail was okay, there weren’t too many out. However, I had put that down to the awfully unusual cold weather we have been getting recently! 

What to see at Trelissick Gardens

Last year I had visited Trelissick in the Summer with my friends. However, my boyfriend Sam had never been before. We wondered around the gardens while the sun was still shining and sat on a bench

while an inquisitive robin sang in the trees. 

We then headed off to the cafe for lunch. I had a vegetable soup and shared a cream tea with Sam. Just as we had finished it started to rain! 

We ran inside to venture the house (which you only have access to the ground floor of). The most impressive part of the house was the sun room. It was so beautiful and I definitely want one in my house although, maybe not as grand!


As well as the cafe Trelissick Gardens also has to offer a gift shop, art gallery, second hand book shop and amazing country walks. After visiting the house we actually went on a quick walk down to the river. You may want to bring wellies as it was very muddy! Trelissick is based next to the Helford river so you have amazing views of the river, as well as being surrounded by miles of fields.
