Having already visited several National Trust properties in Cornwall we were sure Trengwainton would be good but it transpired to be excellent. Not far from Penzance and but not off the beaten track, we found it to be totally dog friendly, even in the formal walled gardens. My goodness! The gardens are superb. Wonderful sub tropical palms, bamboo in abundance,... More

A few years since our last visit and we'd forgotton quite how nice these gardens are. The walled gardens are full of interest and the main gardens are peaceful and very nice. Even on the hazy but warm day we visited, the views form the top of the garden terrace across Mounts Bay were spectacular. Don't miss the excellent tea... More

Just felt like walking along someones drive and into "their" garden. Just look at the beautiful Schruti throws in the shop.

A stunning display of colour with beautiful plants round every corner. Paths snake their way beside the drive, leading to a well manicured lawn and terrace with superb views round to the Lizard. Great cafe as well. Highly recommend it.

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
