About the garden

One of the loveliest gardens in Cornwall – Trewithen Gardens nails the balance between hidden nooks and sweeping countryside views. Trewithen means ‘house of trees’ so it should come as no surprise that Trewithen Gardens is full of wonderfully woody specimens, from the big blousy Magnolias to graceful Acers. In fact, Trewithen Gardens is home to around 20 champion trees, so-called for reaching the greatest height or girth of their species.

As well as these awe-inspiring trees, Trewithen Gardens is full of fabulous flora and fauna, including a spectacular collection of Camellias, which have earned it the accolade of International Camellia society “Garden of Excellence”. Among the 30 acres of woodland gardens is the Cockpit, where climbing Hydrangeas and exotic Tree Ferns jostle for space under the dappled light of the canopy. Visit in spring when the early flowering Magnolias, Rhododendrons and Camellias are in full swing.

After exploring the garden, visitors can enjoy delicious refreshments at the Tea Shed, open until the end of October half term.

Beautiful autumnal day. So tranquil. Perfect food. Lovely surroundings. Uncrowded. Quiet & contemplative. Nature.

Plenty of parking, friendly welcome and a visual feast for anyone who wants to be impressed by the magnificent specimens on display. Great fun. Especially enjoyed the Wisteria and roses in the walled garden where silence is the order of the day.

Privately owned and run estate for 300+ years. £10 p.p. entry to the gardens that are lush and secluded with a wide array of shrubs and trees. Extensive gravel paths to make the best of these exhibits. Perhaps could do with a few features like a waterfall, statues etc to set it off more. "Tea shed" for refreshments and light bites.

First time here since arriving in Cornwall in December. So lucky to have this on our doorstep. Had a wander round these lovely gardens and got coffee, cake and the collected a take away cream tea and some cut flowers from the gardens for Mother's Day. Sun was shining, what more could you ask for.
