Spectacular! Beautiful gardens on the side of a hill with plants from all over the world. As you proceed downwards the garden finally ends at the beach. One of the best Gardens I have seen. Even the road leading to the Gardens is exceptionally beautiful

One of the best things about this garden is they welcome dogs on leads - (unlike the National Trust!!) Also your ticket is valid for re entry for up to 5 days after your visit. There are some spectacular views, and on a sunny day a beach to sit and enjoy. My fave spot was the watergarden with steps down along the pools and waterways, surrounded by palms.

Early June visit- and were rewarded with full bloom especially at the water gardens. This was a wonderful outing for us, it was a bit of a drive and in places not clearly signposted but well worth it. This is an outing that requires walking up and down hills with steps and slopes.
There are walks down to a pebble and sand beach, a plaque commemorates a battalion of US Army troupes who set off from there for the D-Day landing- pretty incredible looking a the tiny beach but explains the big (somewhat ugly) concrete slabs that offer a small seating area for the little ice cream place.
Nice cafe at the top with a good lunchtime food selection. Other half wanted cake too but selection there was not so good. Shop has some interesting garden themed items for sale and there is a small plant center attached to it.
Birdwatchers should come and see what they can spot! We had lots of fun and fed the birds sunflower seeds in the cafe. Happy finches and blue tits.

This is a garden for all seasons. Because of the late Spring, the bluebells were still very much in evidence and the azaleas and rhododendrons very colourful. The gardens have a very well stocked restaurant and two very good shops, one with good quality gifts and one with garden artefacts plus a good plant shop.

Trebah is wonderful. The gardens are simply stunning, it is well managed and beautifully kept. The icing on the cake is the lovely cafe. I had one of the best slices of Victoria sandwich I've ever had here. Tables both inside and out amongst the tropical palm trees. I even like the shop and I normally hate souvenir type shops!

The walk to Trebah from Mawnan church passes beautiful little coves and the quintessentially Cornish village, Durgan. If you are looking to do one thing on holiday do this walk. it takes about an hour each way. Have an amble around the Trebah gardens followed by lunch or afternoon tea then meander back again to Mawgan. A lovely half or whole day out.
