An intimate 3 acre award-winning cottage style garden and specialist plant nursery nestled in a secluded hidden valley in Cornwall. There are 26 identified beds and borders that are full of colour from early season to late autumn.

You can make your own refreshments in the Tea Hut and sample the homemade cakes, also buy plants at the plant nursery. Dogs on leads welcome. Open 20th March to 15th October (except Tues and Weds) from 10 to 6. Entry is just £4.00 with free entry (and Garden Quiz) for children and free access to the plant nursery/tea hut.
