About the garden

Discover the magic of this beautiful 26 acre Cornish valley garden, with over four miles of footpaths. Explore under canopies bursting with exotic blooms and follow vibrant tunnels of colour that cascade down to its very own secluded beach on the Helford River.

One of the most unusual gardens in Cornwall, this lush valley is home to flowers, trees and wildlife from all over the world. See New Zealand ferns in the Stumpery, South American plants in the Chilean Comb, huge Koi Carp, and 47 types of bamboo in “Bamboozle.” Trebah is colourful throughout the seasons with 100-year-old rhododendrons in spring and hydrangeas in autumn making it ideal for a year-round visit in Cornwall.

The young (and young at heart) will love the otherworldly Gunnera Passage. If you’re after a tranquil moment, head for the Water Garden or Alice’s Seat. The Boathouse Beach Café is perfect for ice cream, and you can browse The Plant Centre if you fancy taking something home.

For an extra special experience, take an audio tour and you’ll meet Head Gardener Darren Dickey and Event Co-ordinator Guy Watson, who take you through some key events in Trebah’s story and share their enthusiasm for this fascinating place.

Open all year round, Saturday to Wednesday. From 10 am.

Visited today with friends for the first time & what a lovely place this is for a few hours stroll amongst truly Jurassic, gigantic flora ! A lovely pebble beach at the bottom with a small cafe. We had a mid afternoon late lunch at the main restaurant after our walk which was very nice. Lovely indoor and outdoor seating. Staff were very friendly. It’s a very dog friendly location. Good spacious car park. Easy route round, good underfoot.

Such an amazing tropical garden, the second time I have been here and it never ceases to amaze. So many different species of plants and the gardens are incredibly well maintained. There is a private beach at the bottom of the garden. Nice CAFE and gift shop also. Highly recommend coming here as part of a trip to Cornwall.

Stunning gardens! I had the best afternoon meandering through these exquisite grounds. A myriad of paths that wind through the valley, leading down to a peaceful cove with many hidden ponds and nooks along the way. Lots of benches if you want to sit and enjoy the surroundings. If the gardens are that stunning in winter I really I can't wait to visit in the spring!

A brilliant private garden with an amazing selection of plants. Beautifully laid out and lots of history around the site and collection of specimens. Lovely cafe and dining area. Staff very friendly and, of course, the beach. Fabulous on a hit sunny day.

Just beautiful. Heavily but beautifully planted. The have a pathway through the gardens for those who can't manage steps or are disabled. Fabulous restaurant with a great choice. We have been at different times of year and it never disappoints. Highly recommend.
