Discover Cornwall's stunning gardens
Updated: Jan 8
Thanks to a mild climate, plants and flowers thrive in Cornwall, so much so that gardens have become quite a speciality.
From neatly manicured lawns to wild jungles, the small and unusual to the large and famous, Cornwall’s gardens have something to interest the youngest of adventurers to the keenest of horticulturists.
The Emerald has a number of gardens not far from it doorstep:
Get lost in the magical web of the cherry laurel maze, squeal with joy as you get airborne on the ropes of the Giant’s Stride, explore the old School House or simply relax on the beach.

Another garden with plant hunter origins, Trewithen presents an amazing array of species where champion trees stand next to rare blooms.
Accept the invitation to step inside the magnificent Trewithen House positioned within the garden on the historic, privately-owned estate.
This is where plants, education and human life comes together in spectacular fashion to shed light on the magnificence of the natural world – quite unbelievable considering its former life as a china clay pit.
