Pencarrow House and gardens


The Pencarrow Shop and Plant Shop are located in the cobbled car park, which was once the stables and carriage yard. The shop carries a range of local treats from food and drink to artisan soaps, cosmetics and cards; in the plant shop you can choose from a selection of herbs, flowers, shrubs and trees, some from the estate’s own seed stock.

For young plants we work together with Treseders, a family-run nursery between Bodmin and St Austell. The current owner, James Treseder, is descended from another James Treseder who in the 1820s served his garden apprenticeship under the great plant hunter William Lobb before founding his own plant import business in Truro. The Treseders and the Molesworths undoubtedly would have done business in the Victorian era, as they are doing now!
