Walk down through the peaceful, exotic and playful valley to a sheltered beach at the bottom.

Lose yourself on a walk through the three valleys of Glendurgan Garden - full of fun, informality, natural beauty and amazing plants.

Discover big leaves and exotic flowers in the jungle-like lower valley and sun-loving specimens enjoying the upper banks. In spring thousands of wildflowers carpet the sloping sides of this steep valley.

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. 

On your walk back up from Durgan find a boat-seat, a gigantic tulip-tree and ponds teeming with wildlife. Learn about the Fox family who created this 'small peace of heaven on earth.'

The maze has been foxing people for over 180 years. Who will be first to reach the middle of our living puzzle?

Our maze project

It's been puzzling people for over 180 years but now our much-loved maze needs more than just routine care. In 2015 we're beginning a restoration project - hopefully with the help of a 'hedge fund'.

Quality assured
