Six of us visited in June and had a wonderful and instuctive day. The staff were very helpful about plants and about the work they intended to do ,plus the bonus of the beach and an ice cream. Lovely pathways and a very tranquil feel.

This garden is only £3 entry via an honesty box . It is another world of jungle like bamboos, enormous tree ferns and the best specimen of handkerchief tree I have ever seen. Then suddenly there is a foot bridge and beyond thus more enormous...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
