What a gem this is. The most intelligent use of space as paths round about each other taking you down through a tiny area of hillside. It is packed with plants and trees , ponds and sculptures and places to sit and dwell. A lovely tea area too. You pay the gardener when you see him (I am sure there... More

This garden is magnificent and has a definite Italian theme running through it, I would guess that the owners wife (who is Italian) had a lot to do with it. The garden has many features that divide it into intimate compartments which you can explore including woodland, a water garden in Japanese style as well as archways, temples and a... More

We've been going to St Mawes for years, always intending but never actually getting round to visiting Lamorran garden. This year we finally did, and it absolutely exquisite. A lush, semi-tropical pocket tumbling down through the pretty village of St Mawes: secret twisting paths, tinkling waterfalls and fountains, classic statuary and beautiful vistas of the creeks and hillsides opening up...

We absolutely loved the gardens. Set in a beautiful part of Cornwall, these gardens really do have an 'Italian' feel about them. Loads of interesting features, linked by paths which meander leisurely through the grounds - and a Terazzo which served the most amazing cream tea. What more could you ask for?! If you are a lover of fine gardens,... More

Big private garden you must see if you visit Cornwall. Only open wednesday and Friday for the public. But prioritise it.

The gardens were elegant, peaceful and so well planted and designed - a real treat when we visited it was very hot but the gardens were shady and cool - the spectacular views which came into view of the Carrick Roads were breathtaking - well worth the long walk from the Harbour to find this garden

Just delightful to stumble across this place. My parents (ardent gardeners) thought it rivalled the 'Lost Gardens of Heligan' as it had all the sub tropical plants and was set out in such a wonderful way. At every turn, we stumbled on differing aspects and delighted in the viewpoints and a little sit down here and there. The garden heads... More

The Lodge. We stayed at The Lodge twice this year. First in April and we liked it so much we returned in September. Being keen gardeners we chose The Lodge so that we could have the beautiful garden on the doorstep. The place was immaculate. We had plenty of linen for our needs and all of good quality. The bungalow... More

The gardens were open in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and was good value at £5. The terrace is lovely for coffee and cake following your (steep) walk up and down well signposted paths. The Koi carp pool held the biggest Koi I have ever seen. Not suitable for people with walking difficulties, steep gravel paths and lots of... More

Breathtakingly beautiful & took me back to the Italian Riviera in the 50's before it was spoiled by over development. Built on a south facing slope, the gardens are a mass of Mediterranean flowers, plants & trees with water trickling everywhere & perfuming the air with freshness. Gravel paths lead through arches & over bridges to little gazebos & temples... More
