This beautiful garden set in a sub tropical eco system close to majestic sea cliffs is a masterpiece. It was created on a cluff face over 20 years by Robert and Carole Moule from land that was scrub and brier. A monument to their vision and dedication

How beautiful this garden is crafted out of the cliffside above Lamorna Cove and easy to see why it has featured on BBC Gardeners World and in the RHS Garden Magazine. Not much parking but possible to park in Lamorna. Better still have a drink or meal at the Lamorna Wink and ask to leave your car while visiting garden. If you park down at the quay be certain to pay. It's not expensive cameras are watching you. It is an uphill walk so good walking shoes. The garden is worth the effort but remember no toilets.

Fantastic garden created by dedicated owners. Very steep so walking boots recommended + walking poles or stick. Wonderful garden which we look forward to visiting again.

Tim Mowl writes perceptively in his book "Historic Houses of Cornwall" of how the vast majority of Cornish gardens ignore the county's greatest asset - viz, the sea. Chygurno is an exemplum of this. Less than a few hundred yards from the roaring Atlantic you get merely the most fleeting of glimpses of the glorious cornish coastline; an opportunity missed. What you do get is the undeniable impression of two people hewing a garden literally out of the hillside; an undertaking of enormous labour which has taken the best part of twenty years to achieve. It should be mentioned that sensible footwear and strong leg muscles is a must for seeing this garden. Precipitous steps lead down a series of terraces in what resembles a game of gardening snakes and ladders. Moreover, Health & Safety would have a fit at the number of buckets, hoses and other garden detritus which is strewn on the paths where a moment of distraction could send the inattentive visitor sprawling. No refreshments or toilets. An honesty box policy is operated.
