From Our Editors

Situated at the bottom of a valley between Bodmin and Wadebridge, Pencarrow House & 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.

Beautiful family home where the grounds are beautiful, the guides are excellent and you are encouraged to touch objects around the house which is most unusual.

We had a very enjoyable day out.The house tour was so interesting and not too heavy. We had a very appetising lunch in the cafe followed by a peaceful walk around the grounds.

As it was a gift for someone I can't comment on the house but I have visited the garden several times. Springtime is the best.

I took my mum to Pencarrow for the day, we both really enjoyed it. The tour guide with the blonde curly hair was lovely a real asset to Pencarrow. We then went for a stroll around the gardens which are beautifully kept. We then went into the restaurant and had tea and cake. I can't fault anything it was a lovely day. Thank you to everyone at Pencarrow house for giving me and my mum a lovely memorable day

Thought the tour was a bit rushed, only an hour to see such a lovely house and all the things within
