Pencarrow's history

The history of Pencarrow

Pencarrow House and Gardens has 500 years of history, one of the great historic houses in Cornwall. From Ladies of the manor to characterful housekeepers, if these walls could talk! Our heritage stretches over centuries, and our largely Georgian mansion is still occupied in by the same family who settled here in the 1500s.

We have collected some samples of the stories contained within these walls, and will keep adding to these archives. You can read a little more about the house on this page.
