Quieter than some of the more famous Cornish gardens, Trewidden well repays a visit if you are a keen gardener and interested in Magnolias and Camellias. The tree ferns are also amazing and some of the best anywhere in Britain. The many winding paths round the garden makes it seem much larger than it is. I'm not sure that it... More

Visited late March - an absolutely stunning display of magnolias and camellias and an interesting tour led by the Head Gardener. Obviously not the same range of colour all year but plans afoot to address that. Well worth the entrance fee

...we have been there in august and saw nearly no flower in the garden...so if that is not the perfect time to visit the garden the owners should reduce the ticket price.

Sorry, this review is late as computer crashed and had to be repaired. On Monday 16 June my husband and I visited Trewidden Gardens. Trewidden was originally purchased by Edward Bolitho, and the garden planted by his son Thomas Bedford Bolitho in the mid-19th Century. Today, still in the care of the Bolitho family, the 15 acre garden has a... More

Lovely gardens, really nice to explore! Plenty of places to stop and rest, and just enjoy the day. Little tea room to stop at for a refreshing drink. :)

Pleased we visited these gardens. The tree ferns were out of this world. Small tea room with scrummy cakes.

We just missed the best of the rhode's, camellias and bluebells, but we were knocked back by the beauty of the gardens. Everywhere is so very natural and extremely lush. The most amazing spectacle were the abundance of the tree ferns, some were as large as trees. There are unobtrusive marker arrows directing one around the gardens which we found... More

Very accessible, with a very useful map and a nice little tea-room where we paid our admission and were made very welcome, taking advantage of the very reasonably-priced refreshments on offer. There is a lot of interesting history here. We just loved the tree ferns and bluebells in the old mine depression/bomb crater, not to mention all the other trees... More
