...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

Have been coming here for years. The garden is at its best between February and May (when the hundreds of camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons are in full bloom) but it's a delight to visit any of time of year. The secluded paths and beautiful trees are lovely to wander around and the tree ferns are probably more spectacular here, than... More

From the friendly welcome to a cup of tea and home-maid cake before leaving we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. For colour this is very much a Spring garden,although at any time of year you would get the benefit of the meandering paths always inviting you to something interesting around the next bend. In addition to magnolias,camellias,azaleas,etc the garden has a... More
