As with the nature of many of these Cornish gardens Trebah is on the side of and goes down a steep valley which means that it might not be easy for those with mobility problems like me and our friend who is in her late70s. Both of us have back problems but this doesn't mean we didn't see this lush and often green jewel of a garden. So more than a few steps or climbing down the paths wasn't for me but in the main area is a TV showing images of the garden. Lucky for us my hubby camealone and used my camera. He took photos on his way down to the various parts of the garden we couldn't reach.
What we did manage to see for ourselves we really enjoyed. The large shop had plenty tempt. Plus side our tickets allowed us to return free of charge but this was limited to only a few days after so plan ahead.
The selection of plants to buy was fairly small but they all looked healthy and many were unusual. The staff bent over backwards to later send me a few of them by post. They arrived in a few days, posted within the UK.
The cafe served a good and welcome cup of tea. They had a good selection of food but we only shared a cream tea which was very yummy.
Having visted Trebah before find it is best seen when it hasn't recently been raining as the paths can be slippery.
Trebah is to our mind one of many great gardens that Cornwall has to offer.
