Superb subtropical garden, with special interest for families

Lose yourself in the three valleys of Glendurgan Garden - full of fun, natural beauty and amazing plants.

Discover giant rhubarb plants in the jungle-like lower valley and spiky arid plants basking in the sunny upper slopes.

Wander through the garden down to the beautiful hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River: a place to watch birds and boats, skim stones and build sand-castles.

Find a boat-seat, gigantic tulip-trees and ponds teeming with wildlife. Learn about the Fox family who created this 'small peace [sic] of heaven on earth.'

For garden lovers

Look out for dramatic changes of colour in the tree collection here at Glendurgan. You'll also notice some unusually shaped and coloured fruits on some of our trees too.

For families

When Alfred and Sarah Fox began Glendurgan over 150 years ago they had the entertainment of their 12 children in mind. The maze, giant's stride swing and beach are waiting to be explored.

For walkers

Download one of our walks for the North Helford countryside around Glendurgan and explore the area taking in coastal views and historic features.

Stay with us

Choose from riverside cottages in Durgan village, romantic retreats in sheltered woodland or grand manor house apartments with views to remember.
