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.

The Groupon voucher besides being well worth it also included a very informative tour of the house. It is closed now until Christmas time when they have a Christmas themed opening, info probably on their website, as they don't open officially again until March I believe, but well worth a visit when it does especially as the family still live there.

The grounds are immaculate & with only two full time gardeners,amazing. The food available is first class with lots of local ingredients, very tasty. The House tour is a must. The tour guide is really passionate and knowledgeable, well worth the visit.

The tour of the house guide was very good which made the tour very informative and enjoyable. The walk around the grounds didn't take very long. All together a very good visit.

Interesting guided tour of the house by Sue 2 but not really suitable for young children. Plenty of grounds and gardens to wander around and kids play area. Small cafe serving tasty food and a little gift shop. Very good value as we got it half price through Groupon but they only except credit cards for over £10.
