Monday - Sunday 10.30am - 5.30pm
Come and explore the beautiful gardens of Trewidden, with their rich history and many exotic plants. The layout of the garden is almost a square that has been broken up by a maze of paths which meander through it. Each part of the garden is different offering continuous surprises along the way. The Tree Fern Dell which has been described as the best stand of tree ferns in the Northern Hemisphere came about when Thomas Bolitho filled the old opencast mine with tree ferns newly imported from Australia.
The garden is also known for its enormous collection of over 300 Camellias, and has wonderful magnolias and rhododendrons. Some plants of interest are the Rhodendron Polar Bear which is one of the last to flower during the season, Impatiens tinctoria native to central Africa and the Fuchsia excorticata (native to New Zealand and known by the Moari name of Kotukutuku) which when mature has loose papery cinnamon coloured bark that hangs in strips.
Children are also well catered for as the Trewidden Trail has been specially designed just for little ones. With champion trees and shrubs many over 100 years old along with Cornish cream teas on offer and plants for sale this is a great day out for all.
