Went on a very rainy day in early August and it was an inspired choice. The tree cover helped protect us form the rain showers, and when the sunshine finally came the glorious walled garden was appreciated in full. Highly recommended.

It was very nice to walk about in the garden and watch the different flowers and plants. The garden has a wide range of plants, from all over the world. I prefered the kitchen garden and the other walled gardens. The tea room was nice too, okay sandwiches, but very interesting and tempting cakes. And it is good that they... More

What lovely gardens. We visited this National Trust garden on 31st July. The hydrangeas were in full bloom and the agapanthus are absolutely stunning. We were obviously too late for the rhododendrons and azaleas so I can only imagine that they would be wonderful. The local children had made scarecrows for a competition and they were amazingly good. The woodland... More

Beautiful gardens full of sub tropical and exotics plants, including rhododendron, tree ferns, hydrangeas, agapanthus and palms. Interesting walled gardens growing an abundance of home grown harvest flowers, fruits and vegetables (which are also served in the Trengwainton Tea Rooms). A very well managed estate with a beautiful Jane Austin style manor house overlooking the south facing lawns where you... More

Trengwainton Gardens, near Penzance, offers a fascinating selection of woodland trails with an amazing diversity of sub tropical flora. The walk up to the house (private) reveals a stunning view of the coastline. The walled gardens were a riot of colour and textures. Definitely worth a visit on a hot day as the sheltered paths are deliciously cool! The excellent... More

A must see if you are in the area. A nice walk through wild gardens with lots of different plants including colourful rhododendrons. The walled kitchen gardens are nice with lots of interesting scarecrows. Continue up to the Terrace which is a large open field where you get a look at the private house and views out to the sea...

The woodland was a complete ecosystem with every plant in view something which I had never seen before. The walled gardens had an amazing variety of fruit, vegetables, flowers of most unusual types.

Gardens were a little disappointing but we liked the themed vegetable gardens designed by the local school children. The tea room was exceptional! Lovely food and the best cream tea we had in Cornwall.

One of our party uses a mobility scooter which meant we could access a large portion of the gardens, but paths in the main are covered in loose gravel which isn't the best of surfaces with a scooter. The whole gardens are dog friendly so our small dachshund had a great time. The highlight is the terrace with great views... More
