Came here whilst on holiday and wanted to visit a garden where we could take the dog with us. The gardens cost £7.70 per adult and although interesting in places was smaller than I expected. There are some impressive walled gardens but when we went in September they seemed rather neglected and run down. There is a tea shop off... More

This garden is really a series of gardens, so much to see. We could have spent all day instead of just the morning and lunch. The food in the restaurant was good with plentiful portions. My highlights were the tree fern forest, the kitchen gardens, and the little second hand book shop and art gallery run by volunteers. This is... More

This was our first visit here as it has always been closed when we visited Cornwall in the past. We set off up the gentle slope through the trees in the Tree Fern Glade, then William Walk and up the Long Walk. We glanced at the Upper Pond (mostly weed covered) with its bridge before continuing uphill to the Terrace.... More

Spent a couple of glorious hours exploring the absolutely beautiful gardens, admiring the views from the terrace and wishing we lived in the house. Then to top it off had the best cream tea ever. Blackcurrant jam is the best. Plus hubby was kept happy due to the savoury tea- the cheese scones were delicious. Must visit!!

Only had time to nip in for some tea and scones but had to be done given the reputation we had to stop - got 2 lovely big scones each and loads of jam and cream with a nice pot of tea - only down side was the bloomin wasps but what can you do if you want to sit... More

We went as the rain was clearing. On walking around the kitchen garden, local school children had been involved in making some Pirate Scarecrows.They were brilliant and very imaginative. The garden is colourful with good use made of local fawna and flora.

The weather was typical of Cornwall in the early summer, grey and drizzling, when we set out to explore a little of Trengwainton. As both of us are disabled, we realized that we had no chance of seeing all of even this small garden. Madron, and the gardens, are well signposted for those of you, like us, with no sat... More

I visited Trengwainton on a Heritage Open Day. I walked as far as I could, saw the sea and sat in the loggia and read my book before exploring the walled gardens, art gallery and second hand book shop. The war time garden was very informative as was the information accompanying the herbs. The scarecrows were amusing. I loved that... More

My wife and I visited here partly because it gave us a good chance for a decent length dog walk. The gardens were delightful with a real tropical feel as you walk through the avenues of tree ferns. There are excellent views from the higher ground and an well maintained kitchen garden. We'd go again.

Phoned in advance to check on parking & access for a motorhome and it was easy to find and access as had a second car park for larger vehicles. Enjoyed the beautiful gardens with our dog. Enjoyed the tea rooms too
