A true gem and a must visit if you are near Penzance. The tree fern pit is just magical. On a hot summer's day, it is the perfect place to avoid the crowds, there is always somewhere sunny or shady to sit. The tea and cakes are scrum my too,

It's quite a walk from the road up a long drive if you're on foot, and a good walk round the garden too. Visiting in late August we didn't see the rhododendrons or camelias but there was still lots of colour from unusual shrubs which can survive in this very sheltered spot. It's best to follow the suggested route if... More

Wander round this garden on a hot sunny day and you will think that you have been transported back to the Jurassic period. The ferns are spectacular and the champion shrubs well worth seeking out. We. Spent a couple of hours walking round the winding paths and really enjoyed the journey. A pleasant contract to the manicured National Trust experience.

Pleasurable amble around pleasant gardens. There is no access to the Manor House but that is no barrier to a good visit. We were there when the Alice in Wonderland exhibit was on show in the walled gardens - a fabulous little school project, well done to all the local pupils who created the classic cast.

Seek out the 'champion' shrubs as you wind around the woodland paths leading past the tree ferns which are worth the trip by themselves. The cream tea is pleasant if not the best the West Country has to offer but tuck in anyway. Very nice lady on the desk who seemed to know every inch of the gardens.

We had not intended to visit this garden on our visit to Cornwall as we are National Trust members so were sticking to NT gardens and properties. However, having spent a couple of hours at Tengwainton and been rather disappointed, we decided to pop in here. So glad we did! We were given a map to follow which was very... More

Have passed this garden many times over the years during my holidays in Sennen Cove - this year we finally gave it a visit.....& we weren't disappointed! Lovely winding walks through the garden - you do need to use the map you're given, though, to ensure you see everything. The pond garden & particularly the whale-tail statue are delightful -...

Look beyond the tiredness and the present non wow factor to the plants and design and with a little imagination you could envisage how beautiful these gardens once were not so long ago.
