Trerice, The Elizabethan Manor House Near Newquay, Cornwall


Formal photo of Trerice House, Cornwall

Today it's a quick trip to the Tudor House, Trerice, which is now managed by the National Trust.

Trerice sits in a tranquil setting at Kestle Mill, about three miles from Newquay.

The photo above shows the front entrance including a very impressive window. 

The window is made up of 576 glass tiles some dating way back to the 16th century. Of course, over the years, some of the tiles have become broken and replaced.

The windows look into the Great Hall. The photo below is looking into the hall from above.

The hall fire wasn't alight, unfortunately, but the room must have been very impressive in it's day.

John Arundell, a High Sherrif of Cornwall, commenced building the house in 1572. It seems he married into money.

Wandering around the house are some interesting bits and pieces. I found the painting of the unknown Elizabethan Boy to be quite creepy for some reason! Something doesn't quite look right.

A pleasant old clock next to something more up to date.

A look out of one of the upstairs windows. The stone walls are very thick.

Interesting gardens surround the house with Tudor games to play such as slapcock - an early form of badminton.
