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.

1st February 2021 - 26th September 2021 10:30am - 5:30pm with last entrance at 4:30pm

Outstanding gardens to visit. Lots of very different flora to see. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. We were told it takes 1.1/2 hours to walk round and that was about bang on with a ten minute sit down for a butty half way. It is mostly hard gravel path and can be a little tricky in places. Wheelchair access could be tricky if you aren't used to slightly hilly gravel paths.

We started by having afternoon tea before a walk through the gardens. We were privided with a map and the paths are clearly marked. There are plenty of labels describing the different plants.

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

Lovely garden. Great for a sunny day as the shade from the trees and foliage keeps you quite cool.
