Having contacted the NDC before coming on the 23rd of October I was told the Dahlias were still good but 'going over'...all I can say is if they were 'going over' I didn't notice...wow.

This place was a real highlight of our hols in Cornwall: a field full of dahlias, I've never seen such a huge concentration of dahlias together. It was very quiet (about 6 visitors and hardly any staff in evidence). All the dahlias were labelled and each one seemed unique. It was quite a short visit (we spent about half an... More

We saw the sign and promised ourselves a visit before we went home. We did not regret our decision. What an amazing sight welcomed us, spectacular colourful Dahlias. All shades and sizes, from the small pom-pom style to the luxurious huge ones! If you love these flowers you are in for a visual treat. It was a perfect time to... More

This place is a delight. You can guess that it is Sue who is the garden fan so when I suggested going to Tremenheere Sculpture garden{Just up the road from here} she was quietly pleased....then I found out why. You need wellies on a day as today but the mass of colour and sheer volume of plants took her breath... More

The site was sheltered and colourful. The dahlias were all labelled, so it was possible to identify those you might like to include in your own garden.

Great to see such a mass of flowers. All labelled so really easy to pick which plants to order next year.

Location & situation nothing special, basically a field adjacent to a few poly tunnels. No charge to park up & walk around. Absolutely stunning display of Dhalias. Every conceivable variety. Well worth a visit if you get the opportunity.

If you even slightly like these flowers a trip here when they are all in bloom will let you choose the ones just right for you. Awesome and recommended
