Trengwainton's sub tropical lushness, superb layout and well kept but very natural feel made it a true delight to visit. Paths wind through secluded palm and fern glades, brooks tinkle their way around you, walled gardens offer glimpses of specialisms and a terrace with magnificent views and loads of well designed seating all over the place for the foot weary....

Trengwainton gardens are easy to get to and as a National Trust member I got free entry, it was a lovely place and I would recommend going up through the woodland walk to the left and come back down the main path as it's more uphill than the woodland path, there's a few open areas with lovely sea views where...

Lovely gardens, very free but also very we kept. The garden were very accessible and had beautiful displays. I visited the gift shop, which had lovely staff. They were extremely helpful and it was nice to have people that seemed to actually care. Much nicer staff than in some of my local shops. I also busted the cafe, yet was... More

As this is National Trust we were able to visit for free. The gardens are well laid out and easily accessible. We were perhaps unlucky to be between the flowering but it was still very pretty. I think that there could be a few more markers to name the plants. There was a celebration event on when we were there... More

Relaxing and Enjoyable day out with my mum. Loved the tree ferns! Cafe was great, the staff helpful. Would have loved more identification of plants amd trees along the way. All in all a great day out.

Gardens are tatty and not up to usual NT standards, they need a lot of restoration to meet the standard of a very small property that I would recommend in North Devon - Arlington Court.

Very welcoming National Trust garden with great staff team. The garden has main paths and a number of smaller offshoots that are a really enjoyable wander. There's good labelling throughout and I can imagine in full flower it'd be very impressive. The terrace has a great vista. The main house is sectioned off but I don't think that's any loss.... More

We visited ten gardens during our 2-week stay and Trengwainton was our least favorite. At least it was a bright sunny day and we watched the cows and people across a wide field. I suspect with more volunteers, it could be much better, but free workers are hard to come by. Still, it was pleasant sitting in the sunshine.

There is so much to enjoy at Trengwainton. There are walled gardens and a kitchen garden. This year another area has been opened up to the public, an added bonus. The walk through the Tree Ferns is magical. Once at the top of the gardens there is a terrace with views down to the sea. On a sunny day, it... More

We visited the Trengwainton Garden after a visit to Land's End. It was a sunny day and the gardens were very beautiful indeed. Well worth the visit and we will be back.
