Trebah is a sub-tropical paradise with a stunning coastal backdrop. The result of 175 years of inspired and dedicated creation.

Discover the magic of this beautiful valley garden, explore under canopies bursting with exotic blooms and follow vibrant tunnels of colour that cascade down to our very own secluded beach on the Helford River.

Trebah offers visitors a year round experience. In Spring, Trebah comes alive with a colourful array of 100-year-old rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias; in Summer, the giant gunnera is a must see for young and old. In Autumn, Hydrangea Valley casts clouds of china blue and soft white across Mallard Pond and in Winter, our spectacular champion trees dominate the landscape, whilst plants from the southern hemisphere flower.

With adventure play areas, children’s trails and special events all year round, we are a family and dog-friendly garden.

Our stylish reception building houses an award-winning licensed cafe, shop and plant sales, open free of charge to non-garden visitors.

The history of Trebah is a fascinating tale, from its creation by Charles Fox, part of the Fox family of Falmouth whose influence on Cornish gardens is well documented to the second world war, where Trebah’s beach was an embarkation point for the 29th US Infantry Division destined for the assault landing on Omaha beach. Between 1961 and 1971 Trebah was owned by the racing driver and car designer Donald Healey who removed most of the concrete from the beach, built the boathouse and restored the ponds. In 1981, Trebah was bought by Major Hibbert and his wife Eira, who continued a programme of restoration and in 1990 the Hibberts donated the house and garden to the Trebah Garden Trust, a registered charity.
