Pencarrow House and Gardens
It makes the family's history come alive whilst having that warmth which reminds you it is still the privately owned and cherished home of the Molesworth-St Aubyn family.
Pencarrow is approached by a magnificent mile-long carriage drive through an Iron Age hill fort. Around the Palladian mansion are Grade II* formal gardens, a large Victorian rock garden and ice house, celtic cross, 50 acres of parkland, lake and woodland with more than 700 varieties of rhododendrons and many camellias, easily accessible along well-maintained footpaths. There are lovely Tea Rooms, and a Wendy House with plenty of toys for the children to enjoy. Dogs are welcome off the lead in the woodland (on the lead around the house) and visitors can also pick their own soft fruit when its in season.
