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!

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.

We visited this garden and was glad we fifth. Beautiful garden to wander around, with stunning views from the terrace. Kitchen gardens very interesting, loved the scarecrows made by children from a local school.

We were very lucky as at heritage weekends entry is free. The garden is interesting the views spectacular and we were lucky with the weather as well. Be warned, there's lots of walking and no loos inside the garden. Great to take the dog but a solution to the dog bin problem is urgent. Thoroughly enjoyed lunch. Interesting food, not... More

It is a lovely garden to meander around and some wonderful plants. My wife loved the blue hydrangeas but I got a bit bored because around every corner was...... The views of the coast from the terrace was well worth the trudge up towards the house. The good thing unlike so many National Trust properties was that dogs were allowed... More
