We were having a relaxing Sunday recently, when we decided to go and have a wander around Trelissick again. The joy of it being quite close by means we can just get in the car and be there a few minutes later! I did post about a visit to Trelissick way back at the beginning of the year, in this post, when we got our National Trust membership, and I thought I would share some photos from this visit, to show what it looks like in summer!It still wasn’t too busy at Trelissick, though the car park was definitely more full this time! We encountered a few people walking around, but it didn’t feel crowded.
I loved seeing all the bright colours of the hydrangeas.
The trees are SO impressive at Trelissick, there are different kinds everywhere you turn!There was a childrens trail when we visited this time, which was a great opportunity for younger visitors to learn a little more about where various birds, bugs and other animals live. I took part too, and found that it was a great way to really stop and look around at the wealth of creatures that make these places their home. Closed in the winter months, we stopped by to see the crossing boat, which you can take from Trelissick on the Fal river, to visit Falmouth! Of course we had to stop by the house, where we were delighted by someone playing the piano beautifully. We had a look around, this time there was an exhibition about the local girl scouts! (There is always something new going on!)And of course no visit to the house is complete without stopping by the kitchen tea-room for some nice cake…We had a lovely visit, and it just shows there is so much to see all year round!
It’s heading to the end of the year now, where a lot of National Trust properties locally, close for the winter months, for conservation work. I hope to visit enough to keep posting until November, but it is worth checking online for opening times at this time of year.
