A garden for all seasons
A secret tunnel to the magical Valley Garden
A tunnel from the formal terraces leads to the wild Valley Garden, filled with rhododendrons, azaleas and similar plants. The path curves down to a thatched Victorian summer house, a former medieval stewpond and the beloved medieval dovecote. A gate at the foot of the path takes you to the tiny chapel in the wood, built by Sir Richard Edgcumbe I.
