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!

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
