Beautifully laid out gardens, you can meander through at your own pace, this place is just lovely. Wander down to the small beach to see a bit of history where the US troops left for the d-day war landings. The gardens are quite enchanting with the variety of oversized gunner plants and the babbling waterfalls. When you have finished you... More

A very large garden with lots to see. Sure to be ready for a rest after exploring. Toilets, parking and a cafe available.

I visited with my elderly mother and we booked a mobility scooter in advance. There is no charge for these, but a donation is appreciated. You can take the scooter on the main path down through the valley, and there are two different options to get back to the top again. We found that mum could see most of the... More

Spent about 4hours in the garden, very enjoyable and reasonable price, lunch was good and very reasonable. Walk down to the beach is worth it. We were too late for the camellia and a little early for the hydrangeas but the gunnera?are really worth seeing as were the bamboo. Plenty of smaller flowers. Nice play area for the kids.

We spent a good half day here but probably could have spent longer walking about. Watch out for wasps down by the Estuary. Very scenic views with Camera oppurtunities

What a little gem hidden near Falmouth. The garden is beautiful, topped off by the fact that there is a little secluded shingle beach at the bottom - if you are taking a picnic remember to take it with you as it's quite a hike back up to the car park. Nice restaurant attached to the visitor centre, the only... More

Spring colours were wonderful especially the azelea's, then walk to the quaint secluded beach, only down side no toilets when you get there and you have to walk back to the cafe and shop. Cafe very clean, seats inside and out. Well worth the visit.

How different this place from its near-neighbour Glendurgan, which is singularly uninspiring and dull. Trebah is superb and worth every penny of the admission fee. There is so much colour (even though the camellias and most rhododendrons were over by mid-June) with its water-course and pools, bamboo sequence, rockeries, plus imaginative and varied planting throughout. We liked it so much... More

Really enjoyable to while away a few hours. A lovely walk down to the beach which the kids loved too; hiding behind giant leaves and weaving through bamboo.
