Friendly staff, really interesting hour long tour of the house which linked the history of the house to national history really well with a nice cafe to have tea in and beautiful grounds to walk in.

We visited on a very cold and wet day.
Our visit to the house was made more personal, when the lady of the house let us in to wait for our guided tour and shelter from.the bad weather. Once inside, our guide was friendly and had a passion for the house and its fascinating history. We were unable to see the full extent of the grounds, due to the very bad weather.
We will definitely return.

We enjoyed our tour through the house a lot. It was a very nice trip through the past. Performed by a nice lady, well informed and a with a nice sense of humor. We met also Lady Iona Molesworth-St. Auby and her lovely dog.

The gardens are very nice and we enjoyed very yummy English tea.

Very enjoyable visit. Our tour guide Mandy was very informative and interesting. We had lunch in the Peacock Cafe which was good value and the service was good. The only thing I would say is that we although we only wanted a tour of the house as it was raining and too wet to go round the gardens, we had to pay for the house and garden.

One of the advantages of holidaying out of season is that you don't get big tour groups. This was no exception when visiting Pencarrow House. Our tour was with 3 people and we were 2 of them!! The result was that we had an exceptional tour with loads of information. Not just details of the house and the artefacts in it but stories about the family and their activities. Our tour guide was very friendly and gave us an immense amount of detail about the house and the paintings and the family members.

The house is still occupied my members of the family and is not part of the National Trust or English Heritage. The entrance charge was on a par with visits to houses under the control of those organisations. Well worth a visit.
