We’ve visited many of the National Trust sites in Cornwall, and I thought I was long overdue for a post sharing them all in a comprehensive list! So here’s a Throwback Thursday look back at some of the places we’ve been!
Here is a list of all the sites that can be found in Cornwall, with links to my posts if I’ve visited. I will update with any more links when I get to them!
We have had National Trust membership for a while now, and try to get out and about locally as much as time and weather allows, usually visiting a NT property at least every couple of months.
Some we have visited more than others, if you search (on the right) you may find more than one post for some locations. Others we also want to visit again so you never know when I’ll do another post.
This is an alphabetical list; (excluding walks and beaches), of properties you can visit in Cornwall. Some have different opening times, and close for the winter season, so it is always worth checking the National Trust website before you plan your visit.
National Trust in Cornwall – A Comprehensive List
This was on my wishlist for ages as they filmed some of Alice in Wonderland here! It’s such a beautiful house, and there are also great gardens for a wander!
We loved our visit to Cotehele, it’s one of the farthest to travel to, with lots to see and do, but we hope to visit the Mill as well next time!
Cotehele Mill, Saltash
Glendurgan Garden, Falmouth
A beautiful valley garden, with the bonus of a cute little beach at the bottom! The hedge maze is surprisingly tricky too!
Godolphin House, Helston
Godolphin is a beautiful garden, with a fun wooded area to explore too! There is a wealth of history at the site, and they are usually also running some fun activities for all the family!
Probably my favourite NT property in Cornwall, Lanhydrock is one of the biggest in terms of things to see. It is also such an immersive experience inside the HUGE house, and the gardens are beautiful!
Lawrence House, Launceston
St Michael’s Mount, Penzance
St Michael’s Mount is one of the most unique NT properties we’ve visited, it is of course on it’s own island which is impressive for starters!
Tintagel Old Post Office, Tintagel
Trelissick Gardens, Truro
The closest property to home, Trelissick is somewhere we regularly go to for a walk. It is great all year round, and the house is wonderful.
Trengwainton Garden, Penzance
We love Trerice, which has some fun activities on site, like historic games and brass rubbings, as well as a beautiful house, and lovely gardens to explore.
Wheal Coates, St Agnes
Further afield? Kat over at She’s a Gentry is posting a personal 12 Trusts of 2020 challenge which you can check out here!
