TRELISSICK, CORNWALL & ISLES OF SCILLY
This peaceful house and garden are set on their own peninsula, with stunning views of the Fal Estuary. There are 12 hectares of gardens to explore, with twisting paths leading through important collections of hydrangeas, rhododendrons and ginger lilies, together with woodland plants and herbaceous borders that provide year-round colour and interest. The wider area offers five miles of walks thorough parkland and woodland, as well as by the water, plus a beach for paddling. The house, opened in 2014, has a rolling programme of exhibitions that reveal stories from its diverse history.

About The area
Discover Cornwall & Isles of Scilly
Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.
In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
