Two of the finest sub-tropical gardens in Cornwall - Trebah and Glendurgan
|Stand at the top of Trebah and you will enjoy views over the gardens and estuary below|
|The gardens at Trebah date back more than a century and are reminiscent of Jurassic Park|
Perhaps the most spectacular feature of both gardens is their steep hillside positions, with houses set at the highest point and magnificent views down through the densely planted ravines to the Helford River below. In autumn the vista from the top or bottom of Trebah is impressive, as your eye travels over acres of hydrangeas and huge gunnera beds (above), while spring brings fantastic wild flower tapestries. As you stroll into the valley at Glendurgan you will find amazing trees and the laurel maze (below), which appeals to all ages.

Trebah remains open throughout the year and is open daily from 10.00. Admission is £8.50 for adults and £2.50 for children. Glendurgan closes during the winter months (from the beginning of November), but re-opens in springtime.
