This garden is particularly delightful at this time of year - a riot of colour and blossom. The kitchen gardens are planted out and natural wild flowers such as buttercups and daisies enhance the lawns. There are plenty of seats and the views from the Terrace are lovely. Directions are good.

There is an interesting mix of planting here, from the tree fern glade, to the small themed walled gardens and the kitchen garden. We then headed up along the stream garden where there was plenty of spring colour, via the camellia walk to the lawn and terrace to see the view. Altogether we spent an hour and a half leisurely...

My favourite eating place in Penzance for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. We used to come here almost weekly when we lived in Penzance. We visit it now as often as we can now we have moved a few miles away. All the food is delicious. The staff are friendly, efficient and obliging, and they remember you each time... More

The gardens were beautiful on our visit and the sun was shining! and we had a lovely lunch in the café too. Delicious food and keenly priced. Would definitely recommend.

Spectacular flowering trees and the lawns well kept. It wasa pity that all the paths were not wheelchair friendly.

I have lived in Penzance for many years and I am ashamed to say I had never been here until today. Well what a treat, beautifully presented and you can get right round the gardens without feeling that you've missed anything or getting foot sore. A pleasurable, leisurely walk, that takes in the most gorgeous colours and smells, don't miss... More

May would seem to be an ideal time to visit these gardens as the rhododendrons and azaleas were in full bloom as were the camellias - for garden enthusiasts it is a delight. But the gardens would also be amazing at other times of the year, due to the interesting planting. We also had lunch in the tearooms adjacent to... More

Couple with a 5 month old baby. Worth a visit, very pretty gardens and lovely views at the top. We went on a Sunday in May and was lovely and quiet. Take a drink as when you get near the end before turning round you'll want a drink but the tea room is back at the car park. The tea... More
