Gardens in Cornwall

Cornwall is not only home to far stretching dramatic coastline and countryside, but also a number of beautiful and historic gardens. Across this ancient land are gardens rooted in history; here's a list of the best of them to visit in Cornwall which we've reopened in line with Government guidance for exploring, playing in and relaxing in local to you.

Please book ahead before visiting

We're looking forward to welcoming you back. We’ve reopened the places you love, safely and in line with government guidance. We recommend you book in advance for visits to gardens and parks, especially at busy times such as weekends. Please check the property webpage of the place you wish to visit before you travel.

An ancient and atmospheric estate with a medieval garden rich in archaeology and wildlife. The Kings Garden is a scented sun trap at this time of year, while the herbaceous borders of the Side Garden (left largely untouched since the 16th century) are full of height, colour and scent.
