We had a guided tour by the owner who is very knowledgable about the wide range of shrubs and trees brought back by her ancestors from all over the world. You get far more out of the visit by doing this, but it is still...More

Designed by the brother of trebah and glendurgan gardens but this is one the National Trust do not run. See nature at its best, £3 honesty box, no facilities but this place is a gem. Cross the bridge to see the small lakes and ponds....More

This is a great little garden and worth a visit. Payment is made in an honesty box and they only ask £3 for adults. There are two parts to the garden, the upper is easy to get around, but the lower is a bit overgrown...More

Lovely unspoilt, interesting, gardens. We stumbled across these gardens whilst visiting Falmouth. Gardens split in two by a road but accessed by a wooden bridge, great view of the gardens whilst crossing the bridge too. The gardens were very tranquil and we really enjoyed our...More

This garden was designed by the brother of the men who designed both Trebah and Glendurgan. It is very wild, muddy and slightly overgrown which all add to its charm. Lots of bluebells and wild garlic at present plus the end of the lovely rhododendrons...More

The garden is unlike any other in the area as it is rather wild and has an eccentric feel to it. It's for nature lovers and people who like a 'natural' garden. It has a wonderful jungle feel to it. There is an 'honesty box'...More

Penjerrick Gardens are a unique attraction in that, unlike so many gardens, they are not manicured: they are wild and primeval. Picking your way through overgrown paths - definitely not suitable for those with mobility problens - you enter a jungle of rare and beautiful...More
