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

This is a National Trust property, so there is an excellent standard maintained in most ways. The gardens are a little repetitive - some variation in plant material or even opening some spaces would make it more interesting. Some of the plant materials, however, are truly spectacular! Loved the wall gardens, too. The view bove the haha is lovely -... More

A nice afternoon out but blooms had mostly faded and the gardens were pretty average by National Trust standards. Tea room was probably the best part.

Situated in the lovely gardens of Trengwainton is a fabulous café with indoor and outdoor seating. There is plenty of parking, including disabled parking which is right outside the café, and an overflow car park if needed. The food is fabulous and of a very high standard and is consistently so. Service is quick and polite and the choice of... More

A massive set of gardens with plants from around the world growing in this sheltered area of Cornwall. Tree ferns, bamboo, magnolias, azaleas, rhododendrons, all sorts of things - but with too few actually tagged as to what they are. The walled garden is particularly special - lots of different "rooms". The raised beds in the kitchen garden are also... More

It was a lovely, hot sunny afternoon and we walked for a good distance but it was so cool under the shade of the trees, and such a wide variety of plants to keep our interest, we found the experience a real treat and not too arduous - with the additional incentive of plenty of seats if one wanted to...

I was surprised to see so many tropical plants in Cornwall. And this is one of the place you must not miss if you are interested in plants.
