Mawnan Smith, TR11 5JZ

Selected as one of the ‘Great Gardens of Cornwall’, Trebah is a hugely popular attraction that offers a different experience each time you visit. Depending on the time of year you wander through the gardens you could be lucky enough to witness a colourful array of rhododendrons, magnoliasm camellias, hydrangeas and sub-tropical tree ferns.

The gardens are situated in the grounds of a lovely 18th Century house and spill down into a 25-acre ravine before ending at a private beach on the Helford River.

Open all year round, Trebah is a no-brainer for anybody with an eye for the natural world.
