From Our Editors

Situated at the bottom of a valley between Bodmin and Wadebridge, Pencarrow House and Gardens is a largely Georgian estate owned by the Molesworth family since the late 1500's. Having undergone various refurbishments, the mansion opened its doors to the public in the 1970's and is now a tourist hotspot, ideal for a family day out and history buffs alike. The property is ornately decorated and houses a number of artworks and antiques, including the Ch’ien Lung 'famille rose' bowl, known as the Pencarrow Bowl. The estate is surrounded by tranquil Grade II-listed gardens, containing over 600 varieties of camellias and rhododendrons, woodlands walks and an Italian garden. Visitors can make the most of the on-site cafe, gift and plant shop, and couples can even wed within the grounds.

Gardens were amazing, spring flowers everywhere and so many varieties. Lady who showed us round the house was really informative and friendly, have been before but will definitely go again.
