The name ‘Tregothnan’ literally means ‘The House at the Head of the Valley’ . The Boscawen family have lived at Tregothnan since 1334 and it is the seat of Viscount Falmouth. Honourable EAH Boscawen inherited the estate from his father, the 9th Viscount Falmouth in 1985.
Admiral Boscawen commanded HMS Namur, a 90-gun battleship, during the Siege of Louisbourg in 1758 and won the battle of Lagos in 1759. The oldest surviving part of the Estate is the iconic Kitchen Garden door which dates back to the Plantagenet era.
