Beautiful garden

Fabulous gardens, the magnolias and camellias are out of this world. The views from near the house down to the sea are amazing. Well worth a visit.

We had the most relaxed walk around the gardens - Magnolia out in full bloom and Rhododendrons waiting in the wings for their turn to add to the colour of the gardens. Choose your season well and you won't be disappointed. As usual, you exit via a shop but that wasn't too in your face. A splendid café offers a... More

I visited in late May, 2014. I walked here from Penzance. The gardens are beautiful, with spectacular rhododendrons and lots of other neat stuff. I was fascinated by the vegetable gardens- lettuce and herbs growing on diagonal hills, interesting. There's a nice shop with National Trust souvenirs and knick-knacks. I won't continue to reiterate what others have said, other than... More

The magnolias are just coming into bloom but the camelias are lovely as are the profusion of primroses, daffodils and Helebores. The kitchen gardens have unusual raised beds (sloping) and the vistas along the stream that runs by the main path is amazing. Don't miss the view from the terrace at the top and make sure you try the amazing... More

Have visited this garden several times before. Decided to go again to see the magnolias in blow, we were not disappointed they were absolutely stunning. Tea shop and food were also excellent. When paying our entrance fee the lady asked us to join the National Trust, which we did. The service while completing the form and from the rest of... More

Enjoyed wandering the paths in early spring on a sunny day with beautiful colours from the magnolias and camellias along the way together with the graceful tree ferns and moss lined walls in the kitchen gardens. A lovely place no matter the season I'm sure.

I went on a sunny day but this garden would be enjoyable in all weathers. It's varied and the walks are well laid out. Fab view from the top. Later in the season the walled gardens will have more to see - at this time of year the joy is in the early spring flowers, the large fern collection (including... More

Our children and dog had so much fun in these gardens, such a beautiful place to visit. We spent ages sitting in the summer house looking out onto the ocean. It's the ideal place to take a picnic, one of my favourite national trusts, I wish it was closer to home.

A great place to visit and not a difficult terrain. I like the fact that it has been kept simple and true to the creators of the garden. It has a peaceful ambience and the beauty of the garden are its changes through the seasons. I prefer history to originality and a garden of this age should not be compared... More
