Stopped during a wet and windy day and managed a look round between the storms. Very pleasant time, interesting history and well tended. We stopped for lunch with what seemed a very ordinary menu but the food was far from ordinary, well presented, very tasty and well presented with lots of choice even if the descriptions didn't convey that.

We visited Trewidden Garden, just two miles west of Penzance. The gardens were established by the Bolitho family in the 19th century and they still own the gardens today. On arrival, we were given a map by a very pleasant lady, who told us they recommend a route for visitors with numbered signposts (1 to 30) which we found quite... More

Amazing cream tea, both savoury and sweet options were delicious. I would recommend the spicy red onion and tomato chutney with cream cheese. Very friendly and great service by the young man, welcoming and informative. Would definitely return!

What an amazing garden! It's so natural it's like being in the wild. You follow the trail round which is numbered so you see certain things, and you don't get lost! I really want to return in spring when all the plants would be in flower, camellias, azaleas etc. Peanuts to get in, free parking and great staff who really... More

We went to Trewidden at the wrong time of year. All of the flowering shrubs and trees had finished and we were looking at the more unusual trees and landscape.The route and signage was good but didn't quite have the appeal of more sculptured gardens. This is quite wild and unkept but no doubt has a charm.

A really nice walk around the grounds, it's easy to follow the numbers around the path so you don't get lost but you can make your own way and just use the numbers as a reference if you get lost. It was nice and peaceful when we visited and managed to get a push chair around but some paths are... More

Recently went for a glorious afternoon at the Gardens. They are beautiful and very interesting. Take the Guide offered and follow their suggested route as that way you see it at it's best. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Finished our Tour with a cream tea at their Cafe and my wife said it was the best cream tea... More
