Hello,

I'm not sure if there is an issue with Nominatim or the tagging with these search results(the latter is a little poor) that have been reported to me, so I'm going to ask here before reporting or improving.

Search for

I'm wondering if leisure=garden is not "of interest" enough and a relation object with tourism=attraction + name="Trelissick House and Gardens" would be better.

When I do this, I'll also want to get rid of all the (descriptions) in the name values and replace them with access or operator tags as appropriate.

This is happening because nominatim always shows exact matches before partial matches regardless of the relative importance of the different features. It is a known issue but very hard to resolve.

Within that the importance of a feature is mostly calculated via any wikipedia links. In general adding appropriate wikipedia links to the feature will resolve most problem - although not in this case due to the exact match issue.
