WOW - even on a drizzly day in June this garden shines. Known for its Camellias and Rhodos which were almost over for the year, it had plenty to interest us. Those stunning tree ferns are there all year round and have been for 100 years.

Thank you for your kind review, do come back and see us next spring, there really is lots more to be seen then when the Camellias and Magnolias are in full bloom. More

This garden is relatively informal and is recovering slowly from a period of neglect in its past thanks to the hard work of the team of staff working here. A friendly welcome at reception from a charming multi-tasking lady who served us some coffee in cafetieres before we embarked on our tour of the garden. There is a large lawn... More

For £6 pp I expected some magnificent well kept garden, but was disappointed with the lack of much beauty. Just saw some interesting plants. Wouldn't recommend going in May.

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your trip to Trewidden earlier this month. We are conscious that there is much more colour in February to April when the Camellias and Magnolias are in full bloom, so we do hope you will come back again one day during these months. We are currently planting more flowers in the garden... More

Visited with a friend. We were given an explanatory map to find our way around the garden but each stage of the tour was well marked out with numbered signposts making sure we didn't miss any part of the gardens or re-trace our steps or, heaven forbid, get lost! We were a little early for the rhododendron displays but there... More

I absolutely loved these gardens, they are definitely my favourite of the ones we visited, so pretty and there is something different around every corner It was only £6 entry fee and the lady was lovely and very helpful, we had lunch which was two very large rolls, two pieces of homemade cake and a coffee and it was £12...

We've been to many gardens but these are one of our favourites! Another windy day but very sheltered here and we sat in the sunshine enjoying a cream tea. We had our 5 month old baby with us in the baby carrier and we spent a good couple of hours wandering around. Very clean facilities and friendly staff. Well worth... More

Larger than we expected and some lovely flowers out in early May 2015 when we visited. Most unexpected to find this linear walk garden hidden in the middle of Penzance. Well worth a visit. Lots of seating.

We spent part of the afternoon here and had just a lovely time. The gardens were lovely with many well maintained paths. Several nice water features. We were certainly glad we took the time to visit as we had a very relaxing time wandering thoughtout the garden.

This is a lovely place, about 10 minutes in the car from Penzance. The variety of plants and trees is fascinating and the way it's been laid out makes for a lovely walk. Recommend highly!
