Pencarrow House & Gardens, Bodmin, Cornwall PL30 3AG

The name Pencarrow in Cornish means 'head of the valley' or 'high fort' and this lovely Georgian mansion lies at the foot of the valley between Bodmin and Wadebridge. One wing of the house is still occupied by descendents of the family who first settled here in the 1500’s.

Pencarrow's interior has many fine features including a rococo ceiling, ornate wood panelling, a cantilever stone staircase and handsome stained glass. There is an important collection of family portraits by Sir Joshua Reynolds and other fine artists such as Henry Raeburn, Charles Brooking and Richard Wilson are displayed. To enhance your experience at Pencarrow there are many family artefacts on display including the family's drawings and collections, clothing, costumes and a variety of hats.

The gardens of Pencarrow are not to be missed. There is something for everyone and floral displays for all seasons. In spring there are over 600 varieties of camellias & rhododendrons on display, followed by bluebells and wild garlic in the woodland, and azaleas, hydrangeas and fuchsias in the autumn.

Pencarrow has the first Victorian rock garden in England with huge granite stones near the Italian Garden. See if you can find an ancient Cornish Cross and the grotto which is said to have been a secret meeting place. Of particular interest is the houses relationship with the Araucaria araucana (Monkey Puzzle) tree. It was first introduced to the gardens by Sir William Molesworth who bought the tree for 20 guineas.
