Tregothnan, home to the same family since 1334, has the largest historic garden in Cornwall. Although not open to the public you may, with prior appointment, visit this amazing garden.

A passionate member of our gardening team acts as your host, explaining the fascinating history of the garden, its impressive plant collections, and exciting plans for the future.

This tour takes about two hours and finishes with a cream tea.

Why not make this bespoke experience extra special, by choosing our Head Gardener Neil as your guide? You could even treat yourself to a homemade pasty lunch and posy of flowers.

This is a special experience for anyone, not just garden lovers. Our guests are always spellbound by the magnitude and diversity of the visit as well as the passion of one family for this incredible living collection.

Get lost in ancient Camellias, mountainous Magnolias, and the biggest Rhododendrons in the world. With 40 foot crescendos of full flower, the sheer scale of the garden is breathtaking.

Our tours can be held at either 10am or 2pm Monday – Friday. Well behaved dogs on fixed leads are welcome.
