Explore the wonders of an English country house this spring

If you’re a Cornish history fanatic with a love of all things beautiful, Pencarrow House and Gardens, located in between Wadebridge and Bodmin, is the perfect place to explore this spring.

The house has belonged to the Molesworth-St Aubyn family for almost 500 years, and is open to visitors from spring until autumn. In February, they held their infamous Snowdrop Weekend, with visitors wandering about the grounds, taking in those wonderful first signs of the new season.

History is a huge part of daily life at Pencarrow House, with the team often digging out old papers, clippings, trinkets and belongings to show visitors and their band of loyal followers on social media.

The house offers a poignant reminder of times gone by, allowing visitors to sneak an insight into the day-to-day runnings of a traditional country home, while the dog-friendly gardens are a lovely way of spending time outside in nature, with ample walks, ancient woodlands and a haven of beautiful seasonal plants and flowers.

With the team getting ready to reopen the house to visitors from Monday 25th March, it’s really worth having this beautiful country home on your list of local family-friendly days out this spring and summer - and don’t forget about their Teddy Bears Picnic on the bank holiday Monday, 27th May!
