Beautiful surroundings

The choice and quality of food here is amazing. The staff are very friendly and the café has lovely views over the garden. If its warm you can also sit outside.

Visited in July, beautiful garden very well worth a visit with a delightful contrast of the exotic and the more formal, well kept with friendly gardeners who were happy to stop and talk, our favourites were the walled gardens which were superb

So serene and peaceful - amazing views from The Terrace! Just a multitude of colour - shame the weather wasn't a bit better the day we visited - it would be amazing in full sun!

Have been to Trengwainton Gardens several times over the years & each time a different season & different delights. In May & June the rhododendrons & candelabra primulas are the stars; this time, in July, the hydrangeas were positively stunning along with the blue agapanthus - just gorgeous! Well worth a visit, even if it's raining!

Take time to absorb the view at the end of your walk up to the terrace and head back for a fab meal in the cafe.
