A lovely walk through these wonderful gardens, must be amazing in the spring and summer time when the plants are showing there best colors, but still worth a visit.

A magnificent garden, very impressed with the depth of the collection I know it is late in the season but the fushia were great. Difficulty in getting to the cafe as a tree had blown down

Filled with many rare and exotic plants that thrive in the mild climate of south west Cornwall. The walled a garden is very interesting. There is a good tea rooms situated on the edge of the car park but not easily accessible from the main garden without leaving and going through the car park. The gardens are well worth visiting

Although we visited right at the end of the season we still thoroughly enjoyed the gardens and the view of St Michaels mount from the terrace is wonderful. Also an excellent cafe in the grounds and a NT shop selling plants and other gifts.

We visited the cafe in September on a wet day. We observed a member of the catering staff drop a tea bag on the floor, pick it up, put it in a tea pot, fill the tea pot and give it to a customer. Before we left we approached the staff member concerned and suggested to her that doing this... More

unfortunately we chose the wrong day and towards the end of September not that much to see. Sure earlier in the yesr and on a dry sunny day would be great. Intend to go again next year on a sunny day.

Gardens make for a pleasant couple of hours. Natural garden landscapes emphasized. Surprised, that not much in flower in July. Nice walk but have been to many more interesting and prettier gardens The manor house and view out to the water is gorgeous, but the house is occupied and not open to tour. Make sure you stop at the tea... More
