This was one of the highlights of our week in cornwall in my opinion. Very impressive as soon as we arrived in the visitor centre, facilities, cafe and shop. The kids play areas were superb, and very safe. The walks round and down the valley were stunning and full of interest and plants, and the pinnacle is the beach at the bottom with a stunning outlook and gorgeous water. A truly lovely place.

“Peaceful and thoroughly enjoyable - good for everyone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Lovely place, especially if you are green fingered but it's not essential so as to enjoy this day out.
Lots of little paths and bits to explore - so would be great for little people! There are also play areas and climbing bits for children as well - but I don't believe they would be bored at any point!
Hydrangea valley was beautiful and the Rhubarb leaves were amazing - but the whole walk was lovely, with amazing smells and sights.
Also enjoyed the history behind the gardens - they tied in the D-Day aspect which was poignant and interesting.
Café was lovely and food was of a very high quality - worth stopping off at.
Dogs are welcomed everywhere which is useful if you have a four legged friend - beach was lovely but on sunny days will be a little crowded - very enjoyable day out!

“Wonderful garden but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is one of the most beautiful gardens in Cornwall, maybe even in the UK. Certainly it has been a favourite of mine for 20 years or more. Over time though this once garden has had to raise more money and market itself harder and harder. It has been successful but it is no longer quiet or serene, it is somewhat swamped. The garden has also got a very good name with German tourists and now receives bus loads, and means that the once quiet garden is now full of loud teutonic voices, in fact on a recent visit I found half of all visitors when I was there appeared to be German, this is not an exaggeration by the way. The garden seems happy with this and has many of its signs in the garden and café in both English and German. As a Cornish resident of Germany I am used to Germans but found the numbers flabergasting. A five star garden which is a bit too well known now.

“Restaurant great but garden little disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

The food at the restaurant was really good nod I thought it was very good value for quite posh cafe food. The garden sadly had really suffered in the dry weather and the hydrangea valley looked very sorry for itself.
The beach is lovely but they really need a loo at the beach because it is a hell of a hike back up to the main buildings. Still worth visiting and the plant area was pretty good.
