Adult entrance £8.50. Cafe costs typical of such places (just a little above average, but good choice and quality, locally-resourced). Disabled, children and dog-owners well catered for - unusually - so family groups can enjoy an outing together. The garden paths were wet and muddy in places when we visited, easy to cope with if you wear sensible outdoor shoes.
The valley of plants (hydrangeas and bamboos particularly) were both beautiful and interesting with small waterfalls, ponds and bridges zig zagging down to a small shingle beach with a splendid peaceful panorama of the Helford estuary.
Pleasant way to spend half a day!

Lovely easy access gardens with routes for disabled. Interesting sculptures amongst the wide variety of sub-tropical plants. Beach at the bottom of the garden with its own facilities.

We had a wonderful day out at Trebah Gardens in July. We had planned to go to the Minnack theatre but as it was shut on the day we intended to go, we chose to visit here instead...chosen I might add by our 20 year old daughter, who is NOT into gardens particularly. What a good choice it was....friendly staff, excellent facilities and gardens we all found fascinating. It felt uncommercial in a good way, although was very well kept and sign posted. The spectacular "bamboozle" was a great hit with us all (a forest of bamboo) as was the amazing giant gunnera. We loved the walks which wound around the gardens and ended up on the beach for a well earned rest. For younger children there was also a brilliant looking play area, which unfortunately (they said) my two were too old for (at 20 and 16!) We all really enjoyed it, the scenery was stunning and the whole place was very child and dog friendly and the staff helpful and friendly. Highly recommended by us.

What a gem!

We visited on a blue sunny day......and what beauty we found. A wonderful display of flowers, shrubs and trees. The giant rhubarb is amazing. The reflections in the pond fantastic, the hydrangeas wonderful and the beach at the end of the descent....just outstanding.

A great way to spend half a day,

A little piece of the tropics in Cornwall. Lovely gardens, ancient trees and water features galore! Good restaurant. With access to private beach - a hidden surprise!
