A beautifully laid out and cared for piece of heaven. Set on the side of a hill that leads towards the sea it is crammed with fabulous planting and sculptures in pretty room settings. The afternoon tea was great too!

Private House where the owners so kindly open their garden to the public 2 days ( wed and Fri) a week from April to Sept. Overlooks St Mawes Bay and thus the views are stunning from the sloping gardens. The gardens are of Mediterranean style- they are beautiful with extensive species of palms and tropical plants. The tea on the... More

We walked up the garden from our holiday flat in St Mawes, quite a steep climb in places - it's a rather different journey sat in a car! We reached the garden and got our breath back while enjoying a coffee. There were lots of different areas to see, with a variety of plant types, well laid out with lots... More

Lovely tropical garden but very steep with lots of steps so unsuitable for disabled and those with mobility issues.

Wonderful views of the headland opposite pale into insignificance compared to the beautiful garden. Planted with palms and camellias and with something for every season, this Mediterranean style garden transports you from real life. Relaxing and small enough to be manageable, yet large enough to get lost in. Highly recommended. Cream teas too.

Beautiful tropical gardens. Really interesting to see the stunning plants. Lovely koi carp pond. Had tea and cake in the grounds, delicious. Visited a couple of times and will go back. Friendly staff.

Beautiful a gardens made all the more spectacular having been designed and "constructed" by one family on a steeply sloping 4 acre site. Stunning Mediterranean plants, water features etc in a garden with its's own micro climate. Well worth a visit.

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
