Don't get me wrong the gardens are beautiful and a great experience. The foliage in cornwall is pretty incredible since we are in the UK. I recommend doing at least one garden tour in Cornwall. For me one was plenty. A few tips: 1. Easily reachable by regular bus between Penzance and St. just. 2. Love tea room with great... More

Absolutely beautiful, best time of year to go. Everything was in bloom or fruiting Lovely kitchen gardens with plenty to look at, then lots of wooden trails to explore. It's not a huge garden but I've been a few times and it's never been busy. Great cafe but take a picnic and eat on the ha-ha lawn, stunning view! Do... More

We went here specifically for the den building activity, which was awesome. A big section of the woods was dedicated to den building, and there were some fantastic dens already built by other people. We went on a very hot day and the woods were very shady so it was perfect. The rest of the gardens were beautiful too, and... More

This is a peaceful garden and a beautiful location for a half day visit. The garden was bought alive by a children's scarecrow display. It is a shame the cafe is a concession and not National Trust. Make sure you use the toilets at the start of the visit as there are only facilities by the car park. Also check... More

Lovely National Trust Gardens. Great for a peaceful ramble. Lots of shade on a hot day and an inspiring walled vegetable garden.

We loved our visit to Trengwainton; the gardens were really beautiful and so wild and free. Although you could see the arrangements were well considered and some of the sloped beds were very structured, a lot of the plants were untamed and it was really wonderful to see that.

The staff on entry were delightful. The gardens were a fabulous stroll with lots of hidden sections. Scarecrow judging - fun and well done to the kids.
