Superb tropical garden with wonderful array of exotic plants. Rather steep in places and need to be careful underfoot but well worth a visit. Superb views across the Fal estuary and delicious cream teas served on the terrace

A brilliant garden - a must for any keen gardener visiting Roseland. The gardens slope down to the sea and are enclosed in some places, opening magically to the view in others. Lovely range of plants, excellent landscaping, friendly people. A relatively new head gardener...More
