About the garden

Initially planted by Thomas Bolitho, a 19th-century banker and industrialist, this beautiful garden of 15 acres holds a vibrant range of over 300 Magnolias and Camellias that lie beside one of the largest tree fern dells in Europe.

A maze of paths will lead you to different areas of this tranquil Cornish garden, adorned with shrubs and champion trees, some of which are more than 100 years old. These attractions can be seen alongside rare species of plants not normally cultivated in this country. You may visit the tea room at Trewidden Garden without paying to enter the gardens.

Stumbled across this gem when out exploring. Didn't visit the gardens. The TeaRoom was excellent. The staff were really friendly and polite. The food was excellent and z lovely relaxing atmosphere. Special mention to the waitress with curly hair and glasses. She was great. Really made our day. Brilliant.

Just beautiful, one of our favourite gardens in Cornwall. Stunning gardens, so peaceful, friendly team and delicious homemade cakes and tea in a pretty cafe. It feels like these gardens have been created with love. Highly recommend!

A garden with lots of interest, a great collection of Tree Ferns and full of colour in the Spring. Access was a little difficult with a single track drive with very few passing places. I had to reverse half the length of the Drive twice before I could leave. There's a nice cafe with great cakes. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming.

First time visiting today and it was lovely. Perfect weather and the food from the tearoom set us off for a relaxed stroll around the gardens. So pretty
