A bit about Trevince Estate and Gardens
The name Trevince is of Cornish/Celtic origin. It was first mentioned in 1281 and the family has been here since. The Beauchamp family can be traced back in Cornwall to Hugh Beauchamp who was, in 1195, lord of Binnerton (between Helston and Camborne). The current Owners are Richard and Trish Stone, who are the 26th generation of the family at Trevince.
The gardens include a walled garden of probable 18th century origin and parkland of similar date. Beyond is a “wilderness” walk and then woodland, planted on the industrial waste of tin and copper workings, as the Trefyns and Beauchamp families were mine and mineral owners from at least the Tudor period.
The house and garden sit at the centre of a thriving rural estate. The family has strong connections with its tenants, most of the larger farms having been in the same families for several generations. Some residential tenants have been with us for over 50 years.
Trevince opened the gardens to the public for the first time this year, they are open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1000 and 1600 until the end of September. We organise events and workshops on a regular basis, culminating in our renowned Country House Christmas.
