Fowey - Pencarrow House (half day)

Pencarrow House is a lovely historic Georgian house built in the 1760’s and still owned and lived in to this day, by the Molesworth St Aubyn family. The house is richly decorated and holds a superb collection of pictures, furniture, porcelain and some antique dolls. Sir Arthur Sullivan (of Gilbert and Sullivan) stayed here in 1882 and composed the music for Lolanthe. The extensive gardens are famous for their conifers—some of which tower up to 30 metres (100 feet)—and for the splendid camellias and rhododendrons, which form a blaze of colour.

Enjoy a guided tour of the house and gardens and meet the charming Lady St Aubyn herself (subject to availability). This is very much a ‘lived-in’ family home rather than a museum, and this gives it enormous charm. There will be some free time to visit the excellent craft shop and explore at your leisure. A tasty and typically Cornish cream tea will also be provided for you this morning.
