These gardens are lovely. Would love to go back and see the rhododendrons. Even in October there is still so much to see

We visited on pumpkin day and loved the displays of pumpkins and squashes in the walled garden. There were quinces, pears, grapes and apples in abundance - even some to taste and take home for free! Had a delicious pumpkin, sage and apple soup in the tearooms (homegrown). The staff were welcoming and friendly. We will definitely be visiting again.

We have been to these gardens a couple of times before and they are well worth a visit. The gardens are perhaps best described as being long and narrow. Although the adjoining main house is not NT owned, you do pass in front of this main building when walking up to the far end. There are no toilets or refreshments... More

Well worth a visit, nicely laid out gardens, dogs welcome, clean toilets. Take your own picnic as there is as picnic area provided. Interesting for both adults and children. Walled garden very interesting. National Trust (well worth joining the trust to be able to enjoy many of Cornwalls' interesting beaches and gardens!

Unexpected garden treasure includes semi-tropical plants as well as more traditional varieties. Excellent lunch room.

We had lunch in the franchised cafe first which was superb. The garden was very accessible, it was October when we visited so autumn colours. Loved the walled garden, lots veg and fruit, a fabulous Quince tree with huge fruit on it, the gardener told us the produce was used by the on site cafe which we thought was excellent.... More

some of the bushes and shrubs were just beginning to turn to their autumnal hues, which was an added attraction, as well as many hydrangeas still in flower. the lovely variety of scarecrows in the walled garden was an added attraction. staff were helpful and a good variety of goods were on sale in the shop. Ample parking and paths... More

We came here on a warm sunny day and enjoyed walking around the gardens and looking at the entries in the scarecrow competition. The view at the top is well worth the walk which wasn't as bad as we expected. The tea room is also very good but not run by the National Trust.

Easy access for disabled. I was able to tour the entire garden on my mobility scooter. Loved it all. Peaceful and tranquil, lovely views across to St. Michaels Mount, wonderful water garden, The Dell was delightful, plus the walled gardens were very interesting with many varied plants and flowers.
