Winter in Prior Park gives a chance to wind down and reflect on the year gone by, surrounded by the sights of the garden in winter - and warm up with the tea shed, open at weekends.

Trelissick, Cornwall 

With the mild maritime climate at Trelissick early flowering rhododendrons and camellias bring colour to the garden from February onwards. The borders are scattered with hellebores, cyclamen and snowdrops and the river views are framed and silhouetted by last year’s rhododendron mop heads and towering trees. If it gets too chilly there’s always somewhere to shelter in the summerhouses.
