Our Favourite Cornish Gardens
Spring has well and truly sprung here in Cornwall! We've been so lucky to have so much sun this spring - all the plants have burst open and there is a riot of colour around every corner. Now that we're able to get out and about and visit gardens again, we thought we'd share with your our very favourite Cornish gardens.
Hidden away in a beautiful sheltered valley near Penzance, you'll find exotic and sub-tropical plants amongst woods, streams and dramatic views across Mounts Bay. Interwoven with the planting there is an evolving programme of contemporary artwork from internationally renowned artists that harmonises with the landscape.
Hidden away on the Roseland Peninsula you'll find this stunning Italianate inspired garden. Winding it's way across several levels and surrounded on all three sides by the sea, the views are just breath-taking. The garden holds an extensive collection of unusual plants from the southern hemisphere and sub-tropical regions.
A 30 acre garden with ten individually themed garden rooms, giving plenty to discover. Chang Li, the Head Gardener, has introduced some beautiful elements of Eastern influence including a Japanese garden with an authentic tea pavilion.
Full of spectacular rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias, these gardens are the perfect place to escape to for a spring afternoon. Set in the grounds of Caerhays Castle and meandering down to a beach and the sea, it feels like a world away from everyday life.
