Hot to Trot at Trelissick

Sally-Ann had spotted that the National Trust have a few things planned at Trelissick Gardens throughout the December period.

Today we took advantage of the horse and carriage rides that were on offer for a mere £3.00 per person. As we have our passes to get in for free, this meant a nice cheap day out and a great start to the Christmas celebrations.


We arrived at 11.00am, and headed straight to the coach house and stables to book our seats on the earliest possible ride.  The first was to leave at 12.00 noon, but we managed to get booked onto the 12.10pm slot.PC030094PC030093

We had about 50 minutes to kill, so took advantage of our passes for the garden and headed off for a slow meander through the grounds, arriving back at the stables about 15 minutes early.


We had a mooch around the NT shop, and then went to claim our seats on the carriage.PC030120


The groomsman was all dressed up in elf hat, maintaining he was head of ‘elf and safety!

After our ride, we headed back to the cafe for lunch and a coffee.

It was only early afternoon when we left, and as we were only a short way from Carnon Downs Garden Centre, we headed there for a little wander around before heading back home.


What a treat of a day.

Thanks guys!
