The Flowers of Trerice – A National Trust Property


It’s so worth it to be members of the National Trust and English Heritage when you have a little one to entertain.  During the holidays or weekends, when the weather is good (or even bad), a day out in any of their properties is sure to be a winner and of course not just for the little ones, but as well as for the grown-ups too.  There is a rich history behind each property which allows us to get a glimpse of what it was like to live in a certain era and they often come with lovely grounds and gardens great for exploring or just enjoying it’s beauty and splendour.

Trerice is a grand Elizabethan Manor near Newquay down here in Cornwall.  Just like all other National Trust properties, the gardens have beautiful plants, trees and flowers, but since it is still early spring, there wasn’t much abundance of them, but even the few that were there were still lovely and definitely worth a photo, or two, or more 😉


Bluebells are one of my favourite spring flowers.  We didn’t find a lot of them, but still saw them dotted all over the gardens.


We also spied a few pink ones too.  Aren’t they the prettiest?


Beautiful red tulips.


My favourite spring flowers are snowdrops, bluebells, tulips and of course daffodils.

What are yours?

Do you have any favourite National Trust or English Heritage property?

Do share.


  1. Now my boy is 3 and a little more wary of what’s going on, joining the National Trust is something I want to do. I always found it boring as a kid but then again if it wasn’t football it was boring. I want him to at least have the opportunity to decide what he likes though. Great pictures too, fantastic!

    • Like I mentioned on the post, I think it’s really worth it, especially when you have little ones. After more than a couple of visits, you’ve paid off your membership fee already 😉

    • That is handy! There are loads of lovely National Trust properties to visit down here in Cornwall 🙂

  2. It is amazing how many National Trust places there are to visit, eyt I have probably been to less then 5 in my life time.

  3. Gorgeous pictures! I used to have a National Trust membership but then I got a full time job and simply wasn’t going to these wonderful places as often to worth spending that amount of money. This ones looks really beautiful and well-kept… and looks you had a wonderful day out, which is always nice. 😉

    • You’re right. It’s only worth if if you intend to visit often and when you have kids, you always find yourselves in a National Trust property especially during the holidays 🙂

    • Going around National Trust properties is definitely a lovely day out. x

  4. This looks like a lovely place for a spring walk. I’ll have to check out what national trust properties there are near us. On the subject of flowers, I love daffodils 🙂

    • I love daffodils too… They are such “happy” flowers aren’t they? 😉

  5. I need to have a quick moan before I actually comment… I know your box should be accessible to me, but it isn’t I don’t know how many times I’ve clicked on this for it to work and it doesn’t. But as you can see I do try my best to leave comments!
    Cornwall has so many beautiful National Trust park, I feel terrible that I’ve barely visited any in the 20 years I lived there. Having a membership definitely seems worth it if you have the time and children. Thank you for labelling each picture, I can imagine how beautiful the flowers look. Sounds like you had a lovely day 🙂 xxx

    • Oh dear, so sorry it’s hard to comment Sassy! Don’t really know how to change it I’m afraid 😉 I’m a bit clueless when it comes to the technical side of things. How about when it’s acting weird again, would it be easier just to leave a comment on the post on my FB page? Hope that helps. xxx

  6. What a beautiful place! The flowers are so lovely. We’re hoping to get to our local national trust property over the next week – just need to try and pick a day when it doesn’t rain. 😉

    • I think the weather is going to improve this week 😉 Here’s hoping the weather forecast is correct. x

  7. I love places like this. I am always looking for great places to photograph as photography is my main hobby, and doing stuff for my wife when she is not ill.

    Need to put this on our bucket list.

    Thank you for sharing.

  8. Keep meaning to join the NT. I hear amazing things about it from people that are members. The rainy day kids thing is a compelling reason I think!

    • Like I mentioned, it’s really handy especially for parents with young kids and during the holidays like Christmas or Easter. They always have loads of activities planned for kids.

  9. I love them all, beautiful photos! We havent used our membership this year because of one thing or another but we are in Lancashire and there is lots of places to explore in the lakes, i think now the weather is getting better (even though we just had thunderstorms and snow) we can get out and explore 🙂

    • I do love exploring lakes too, but sadly we don’t have much down here where we live Cornwall. The nearest one I think is almost an hours drive away.

    • I don’t think I’ve been to Kingston Lacy. Must look that one up, in case we’re in the area 😉
