Grampound (Nr Truro), TR2 4DD

Described by Great Gardens of Cornwall as playing host to “a wealth of the most exciting, rate and beautiful plants and trees in the British Isles”, Trewithen offers 28 acres of incredible beauty.

Trewithen’s collection of camellias, rhododendrons and magnolias are famous the world over but there’s plenty more to see here too. Children are sure to have a great day out not only because of the beautiful surroundings but thanks also to the popular play area and a delightful camera obscura.
