Visited yesterday, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house tour was informative and not too long! The gardens and cafe were both very good as well. Well worth a visit - highly recommended.

We went to Pencarrow in May, when the rhododendrons were just about past their very best, but still looked amazing. There is a huge variety of colours, sizes and varieties there and they looked beautiful. Camelias were just finished but here was a beautiful carpet...More

A lovely place to visit. The grounds are amazing and the house tours are really good. The cafe has plenty of seating inside and out and the food is homemade to a good standard

I had the pleasure of living relatively close for 7 years, and visited it frequently for aa lovely walk through the gardens and of course the cream tea. 3 or 4 hours sounds nice. Don't be in a hurry. It is really lovely!
