ENYS GARDENS

It is said that Enys is considered to be the oldest garden in Cornwall. Robert de Enys lived there during the reign of Edward I (1272 - 1307). The 1709 Edition of Camden;'s Magna Britannia mentioned that Enysd was noted for its fine gardens. In 1833 John Samuel Enys engaged Henry JHarrison a London Architect to produce designs for the garedn as well as the house. Amongst these features was the ladies gardem, later called the flower garden. Through this is entered the colonels garden named after colonel enys. J Enys greatly enriched Enys with seeds and plants he regularly sent home from New Zealand and Patagonia. In Spring the bluebells in the parkland, kmown as Parc Lye are a suight to behold. This area is believed to be undisturbed since ancient times and contains many trees of great age.

 The formal gardens such as the flower garden and the colonels gardem still contains plants, trees and schrubs from the JD Enys collection. The estate also has a fine collection ofg bamboos comprising a number of very rare varieties. Probably the most valuable asset to this garden it its mirco climate. It is virtually frost free and this together with the mild temperature influence of the gulf stream enables many tender plants and trees to flourish. One of the most popular of these is the Peruvian Laurel, one of the few specimens growing in England today. There is also a Mauiden Hair fern tree (Ginkgo Biloba) which is said to be the tallest specimen outside Kew Gardems.

Trerice is a small Elizabethan manor house built of buff-coloured limestone. The house is set in a quiet valley, approached by a narrow, winding lane. .

 

The house was built in 1573 by Sir John Arundell , replacing a home that he inherited from his father. Sir John's father, also called Sir John, making his fortune in the service of his country; knighted after the battle of the Spurs, was Esquire of the Body to Henry VIII before going on to serve under King Edward VI and Queen Mary.

The Arundell family supported the Royalist cause during the English Civil War and some a degree of financial hardships as a consequence. At the Restoration of the Monarchy their fortunes revived.

The Arundells lived owned Trerice for over 400 years; the property passing to the Acland family of Killerton in Devon in 1802. The property was again placed on the market in 1915, changing hands several times before finally being acquired for the Nation by the National Trust in 1953.
