Trengwainton Garden - Gardens To Visit In Cornwall

Trengwainton Garden is a garden we often visit. It is about a 20 minute drive from St Ives and is a lovely place to go to. It is a very sheltered garden, full of exotic trees and shrubs. During the Spring, the camellias are stunning, followed by the azaleas, magnolias and the oh so blue hydrangeas.

We love to walk through the wooded area and up to the Terrace. On a nice day the Terrace is such a sun trap. It is simply lovely to sit up there, surrounded by stunning plants and so many bees and butterflies. The view out to Mounts Bay and the Lizard is lovely.

The walk back takes you down a wide road, lined by a river. My children find this fascinating and love to poddle about there. They also love the little house up on the green. During the Autumn the falling leaves on here are sensational.

We usually go back through the walled garden, orchard and beehives. There are loos here and a little bookshop.

During the school holidays there is often a lovely trail or activity for the children to do.
