Trerice

Trerice is an Elizabethan manor house, located in Kestle Mill near Newquay, Cornwall, England, UK (grid reference SW840584). The building features a main south-east facing range of 'E'-plan abutting a south-west range containing two earlier phases. Phase I consisted of a tower house with low north-west block. This was extended early in the 16th century, probably by 'Jack of Tilbury', to include a 2-storey range to the south-east of the earlier tower, together now forming the bulky south wing. Sir John IV Arundell, High Sheriff of Cornwall and father-in-law to Sir Richard Carew,[1] historian, added the main range of the E-plan circa 1570-1573.

The house, along with its surrounding garden, is a National Trust property.

The garden features an orchard with old varieties of fruit trees.
