An amazing garden to visit. Make sure you have some good non slip shoes though! Great Tea room with fabulous cakes and very friendly dogs!

Lovely to spend an hour exploring gardens with kids and taking in the views - just what we wanted in order to relax and do something different which wouldn't take up to much time - work off that pastime!

Wow. What a great place . You have to love/like gardens but who doesn't. This place is perfectly set on a sheltered hillside above St Mawes. It has an intricate path system with loads of hidden little corners and great views out to sea . Nice little tea room/patio . Worth every penny of the admission fee .

What a beautiful garden, we wandered for ages along the paths up and down, left and right. Rather too steep for those not so good on their legs admittedly but with a Cornish cream tea at the end of our visit it was a delight. Don't miss it.

What an amazing garden so many points of intrest and the view across the river is a treat ,the garden is quite steep so not suitable for the less mobile, it's worth the climb back up for the Cornish tea

A beautifully laid out and cared for piece of heaven. Set on the side of a hill that leads towards the sea it is crammed with fabulous planting and sculptures in pretty room settings. The afternoon tea was great too!
