First visit of the year and the gardens were lovely, as always. However, on this occasion, the food was not up to standard.In particular, the scones were very salty, quite unpleasant.

This is a very nice garden, and if you're up for the walk, readily accessible from the SW coast path leading toward the Helford River.

We spent an afternoon walking round the beautiful gardens whilst holidaying in the area. It came well recommended and it didn't disappoint. The place is well signposted and had ample level parking. First stop was the eco friendly cafe, which was popular. It has an extensive menu to choose from, with a good number of tables. The food was excellent... More

This is a great day out. We took our friends who were visiting. The scenery is fantastic. AThe gardens go right down to the beach. The maze is so attractive from high up. There is a resturant where you can have lunch & drinks. Well worth a visit.

Visited in the summer with a friend and our daughters. Had a lovely few hours pottering round and exploring these gardens and the girls enjoyed the maze very much. Even though our friends have visited before they really enjoy it here as something different everytime and the little village at the end of the gardens with the cove is delightful...would... More

This garden must be visited. Walking down through the autumn trees of red and cold this pretty garden was a surprise and delight to be in. A short easy amble to the sweetest little village of Durgan with its own beach was just a joy in itself. Loved it so much will definitely go back. Would recommend an Autumn visit... More

This garden is charming and set out very naturally, lots of viewing points. A little steep in places. Best viewed in spring but lovely in autumn too. Children will love the Maze and beach.

These gardens are a hidden treasure and are well worth a visit. Off the main routes its a little challenging to get there but its well worth it. Helpful informative staff and an excellent cafe all add to the very good experience. The gardens are set either side of a deep valley and whilst spectacular are a little challenging to... More

My wife and I recently spent an afternoon wandering the gardens of Glendurgan and found the area enchanting. While not the largest garden we've visited, it is among our favourites. Take the time to wander down to Durgan, with it's quaint little beach area. The maze is also a must see, pack a snack as it may take you a... More
