Trelissick Garden is a favourite of ours and we’ve visited a few times this festive season. It’s on our doorstep and there’s always something different to do.
The house was open and decorated for Christmas with a cafe in the house serving festive fayre. We didn’t see the big man, but he was there telling stories and giving gifts if you were organised enough to book ahead.
On our various visits we enjoyed: the Christmas trail; Santas on motorbikes passing by; hide and seek; Christmas cake and mulled apple juice; lights in the gardens; chasing after friends (being muddy monsters in the trees); soaking up a little sun on the beach with friends; the woodland walk; and finally a trip on the King Harry Ferry which eldest has been waiting for. And the boxing day chutney we bought in the shop. Yum.
You can walk across the parkland and the woodland walks without paying entry to the gardens, although they are worth a visit. The cafe and toilets are still accessible in the courtyard.

I’ll leave you with a few photos.
