‪We were there for the Port Eliot Festival in July of 2018 and although the weather was rather drippy, the organizers did everything possible to make it work out. We had a fabulous time even though we had to drive an hour out and back from our accommodations near Canmore. So sad that they have had to stop doing the Festivals.‬

‪This review is just about the church.

I spent an hour in this church on my own and was fascinated. You descend from the main village street down a switchback path through the steep churchyard. The architecture is quite ornamental on the outside. The doorway at the western end has layers of zigzag bricking around it, which sadly has been mostly worn away.

Inside, the church is surprisingly big--in effect the width of two normal churches but no longer--with a row of pillars down the middle and two separate sets of windows at the eastern end. There are some lovely areas of flooring, including a Roman-style floor up by the altar of the left half of the church. A wealth of art decorates the church, with plentiful information to read about it. The east windows are by the William Morris firm, to designs by Edward Burne-Jones--the ones on the left window are particularly stunning, picturing Jesus and various saints in imaginatively draughted, angular poses, exquisitely balanced with each other in rich, deep colours, and rising up to roundels of angels at the top. In my opinion, this is a masterpiece.

Set in a large recess in the northwest corner of the church is a huge baroque group statue of Edward Eliot, who died in 1722, by John Michael Rysbrack, posing Eliot in Roman clothes, along with his wife, angels, etc. Though the overall effect is mannered, the sculpting is acutely lifelike in detail, with beautifully sculpted hands and feet in particular. Several friezes around the church are sculpted to a similar standard of skill and imagination.

Such is the heady power of this church it almost made me want to turn back to the established church. But you're in no doubt it's become something of a shrine to the Eliot family, whose tombs and plaques crowd every corner. I'm sure they were a magnificent boon to the local area (as they still are--preparations were on the go in the family grounds below for the Port Eliot festival). But is it humble and Christian to be memorialised and magnified for posterity inside the church, as if trying to ensure a place with God? It strikes me as creating an order of importance among worshippers, based upon money and position. How blessed are the not very meek?

Information inside the church explains that the original Cornish monastic foundation here, before Saxonisation, Normanisation and the present building (which dates to the 1200s), was the equivalent of a bishop's seat. The church is named after St Germanus, who came to Britain in the 400s to combat Pelagianism.

Apart from the church, St Germans village has the Port Eliot house to visit and a peacefully beautiful quay. It has all the characteristics of a remote and secluded spot, yet with a mainline railway station. I'm sorry I left it so long before visiting.‬

‪Port Eliot provided the best possible backdrop for the delightful wedding of good friends on a warm September afternoon. Easily accessible, a gentle walk up to the Orangery for a touching, relaxed and upbeat ceremony before pouring out into the sheltered garden to kick start the hospitality with great music and some nibbling. A choice of paths back around the park, including views of the unspoilt offshoot of the estuary and back across well kept meadow towards the house and rolling parkland to an ample stylish modern marquee, for a good deal more drink, a perfect meal and a wonderful party. The house gently lit behind, a light mist down toward the distant water. Excellent arrangements in a perfect location.‬

‪We were told that trolleys would be provided to transport camping equipment from the carpark to the camp area which is a long walk up and down hill from the cars. Rubbish, 2 trolleys for hundreds of campers! Totally inadequate. Due to appalling weather - no-one’s fault I know - everyone was leaving early, filthy, wet and exhausted carrying stuff miles to their cars. A total disaster and leaves a bad taste when you’ve paid £100’s to be there. The festival is lovely, the infrastructure around it is poor.‬

‪Palazzo classico inglese: lavori in corso, molto disordine, nessuno.... forse fuori stagione? grande parco intorno ma impossibile accedere al palazzo per visita. Probabilmente è meglio informarsi prima evitando un giro a vuoto.‬

‪Visited today with my Mum, moved to area recently and wanted to see...
Lovely welcome and very informative guides especially "Maggie".
House absolutely lovely, very informative and as I love history absolutely fascinating...so much better than any NT property I have ever been in...and local to me...how lucky am I?
Even had a "downstairs" tour which was very " Downton Abbey"and just "wow"...I absolutely love this place. The church is also very, very lovely...and well worth a visit...so, so peaceful...
The gardens ( don't pay any attention to previous reviewer) are gorgeous, we didn't have time to explore all of it...so will be back...but ohhh to live there...so so lucky....love this place and would recommend you go...it is worth it...‬

‪We visited Port Eliot for the gardens and did not go into the house. The grounds are large, and while there were a number of interesting and colourful trees and bushes, there were large parts of the grounds where there was nothing of particular interest. There are many better gardens in Cornwall.‬

‪The house is fascinating and has an interesting story, the shabbiness added to the charm and gives a better insight into how much of 'the landed gentry' lived than the sanitised NT offerings. We also saw the cellars and tunnels. Shame about the tearoom being closed now and we felt that 3 hours was no where near long enough although we did have a buggy ride around the grounds. The signage was also poor and we never did find the Car Park but were able to park outside the House. The Church was interesting too.‬

‪One of the best literary/music festivals despite the mud. A real family event for all ages, especially the young.‬

‪Our visit was only about three hours, which was definitely not long enough. Set in over 6,500 acres near St Germains in Cornwall the House is reputed to be the longest continuously inhabited building in the UK. Originally a monastery it is clearly still used by the family and has a wonderful collection of family portraits through the ages though arguably the most stunning piece is the mural by Robert Lenkiewicz which gives a very quirky feel. The adjacent church was originally the Cathedral of Cornwall and was linked to the Monastery by cloisters (now demolished).

We were extremely well looked after and the stewards were both helpful and informative, only two of our group ventured into the gardens (mainly parkland) as the weather was not all that good, given more time they would have liked to explore the stables and the milking parlour. On a better day there are some terrific riverside and parkland walks.‬
