Magnificent collection of magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons with a stream garden and meadows. Walk along the Long Walk to the Terrace with views over Mount’s Bay.

The Walled Garden is in the lower part of the garden and is divided into ten compartments, each section a separate wonder. The Veitchii and Campbelli Garden are filled with tender and rare shrubs grown from seed in the early 20th century by Alfred Creek, Head Gardener. The sloping beds of the kitchen garden are filled with nasturtium, pumpkins and squashes with one part divided off for use by the local community.

The gardens are usually closed on a Friday and Saturday but check the website for details.

The Bolithos still live in the Italianate house.

National Trust members visit for free.
