“The best value in Cornwall”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Great gardens especially in the spring. The cafe offers good portions of tasty home cooking which is excellent value. What a treat to find staff who are always very friendly and cheerful. Trellisick could learn a lot from this little gem!

“Now open - one of the first to visit this year”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

My husband and I visited Trengwainton Gardens on the first day of opening this year 12th Feb whilst on a long weekend in Cornwall.
We had a lovely walk around the grounds and noted all the buds on the trees/shrubs which should blossom soon - I would say mid March onwards would be the better time to visit as little in bloom at the moment.
We will definitely revisit in the spring/summer months when back in Cornwall

“A Great Place To Spend A Few Hours”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Trengwainton has some lovely walks through the gardens, as well as a lovely walled garden. There is a great view from the lawn across to the coast as well. We definitely recommend the food there, the quiche was wonderful.

“Lovely gardens and nice cafe”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

As we are members of the National Trust, we go there often during the year and there is always something new to look at as the seasons change.

The cafe is well run and the food always fresh and plentiful. Can recommend it.
