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 -...

Lovely Garden to spend a good couple of hours exploring! Nice to be given a map at the start to plan out the best route! Great value tea rooms as well!

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.

Although much of the spectacular blooms provided by camellias and rhododendrons had gone the gardens still provided a contrasting array of foliage interspersed with flashes of colour. It was also fabulously quiet and made for a very pleasant afternoon out in the sunshine. The tea and cake was nice too.

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

Highlights by month on the map from the head gardener for specific things to look out for as you wander around. There are loads of other paths to take if you just feel like doing youf own... 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
