Bassets @ Tehidy House



The name of the Basset family is firmly associated with the manor house in Tehidy, on land associated with the family since Norman times.


A substantial house was first built on the site in 1734, by John Pendarves Basset, and though the family enjoyed much wealth and influence over the next 280 years, their personal-lives were not always happy.
