Featuring several areas, winding wooded paths, a stream, walled gardens and views across the meadow, there is plenty to explore whilst enjoying the thriving subtropical species. Situated next to the car park and toilets is the award-winning... More

Having been here a few years ago , I can confirm that the garden is worth a visit with lovely walks and view towards the sea. However, was in Penzance for a couple of days and having decided to revisit the Garden, I found that it is closed on Fridays and Saturdays. Now I am sure that there are good... More

We stopped off here on the way to Lands End. The gardens are fabulous and the views from the terrace particularly are wonderful. Well worth a visit.

This garden is ill-kept - many many weeds and a good number of the plants are clearly diseased. Lacks drama and good design and the so-called spectacular views amount to very little compared to others in the county. It does not come close to comparing to other gardens for which you pay entry. Furthermore, you will be asked if you... More

We were going off to Tresco but had a few hours to spare, glad we did, the range of food here & its quality was superb, quite a few wines to choose from too. There is no fee to get in the cafe/restaurant. (there is into the garden unless you are a N/T member) The garden & its shop seemed... More

Great garden - perfect this time of year. Easy accessibility for all ages. Unusual example of a Wollemi pine in the grounds.

The weather that day was no too good, so we thought that we would visit this venue. A very interesting and peaceful garden. The shop etc was well looked after and all the volunteers very friendly. Although a National Trust site, the cafe is not. No problem, except it is very popular and is used as a lunch place by... More

Been here for last few years,the gardens are lovely,great afternoon out. Very disapointed in the tea room,I went twice last year on holiday. The soup was something I haven't heard of,so after ordering jacket with cheese,tuna sandwich and ploughmans,three drinks. I got a £20 out ready to pay,when she said £29.30 I was shocked! I realise Cornwall is expensive but... More
