Peacock café

The Peacock café is housed in a beautiful vaulted building with plenty of space outdoors. Here you will find tempting cakes, lovely lunches and a great selection of teas and coffees. All our food is freshly made and locally sourced with the best Cornish produce. Alongside you will find our natural children’s play area – complete with a one of a kind slate roofed Wendy house!

Please note that there is no charge for visiting the Café only, just let our friendly staff in the shop know on arrival.

Visitors with limited mobility

On arrival please call in at the gift shop (situated in the main car park) and let them know of any particular requirements you may have for your visit.

• Parking – we have disabled parking available just outside the house entrance. There are also places to park very close to the café. Please call into the gift shop situated in the main car park and they will direct you.
• The Peacock café, gift and plant shop are fully accessible.
• Toilets – we have a unisex disabled toilet.
• House tours – ramps are available for wheelchairs access into the main house. There are seats in most of the rooms on the tour for those who cannot stand for long periods of time. For those who cannot manage the stairs, we are able to offer access to a film of the upstairs part of the tour, which visitors can watch downstairs.
• Gardens – the paths are hard, gravelly and mostly level but as the gardens are listed and old we ask for your understanding that some of the walkways are uneven. There are gentle slopes on the walk to the American Gardens but wheelchair users with strong arms or motors have said it is worth the effort! We have two ramps onto and off the grass on the East Lawn. There are steps around the garden; but we have a map in the Gift Shop which shows you where these are. The more robust mobility scooters may be able to access the slopes to the lake, however the smaller less sturdy scooters may struggle to cope with the terrain.
• Assistance dogs are welcome, including in the house and Peacock café.
• Wheelchairs – we have two wheelchairs available for use. It is advisable to book these ahead of your visit, please telephone 01208 841 369.
Sadly we regret due to safety that we can no longer allow mobility scooters inside the house. We do have wheelchairs to use and of course your own wheelchair is allowed.

"The lovely gardens were a delight to see even though it was raining, we still managed to cover the whole extent of the woodlands, lake, grotto, wishing well and formal gardens, ample seating around gardens. Had a relaxing picnic under cover taking in the beautiful views."
