Located on the stunning Lands End peninsular, just west of Penzance. Trewidden benefits from a mild, maritime climate, enabling a large collection of tender plants to be established. Started in the 1840’s by Edward Bolitho, Trewidden Garden has a rich horticultural and industrial past.
Experience the truly remarkable stand of tree ferns, set within ancient tin workings, said to be the finest in the Northern Hemisphere. Find Champion Magnolias, a venerable old Jelly Palm and an extensive collection of Camellias, Rhododendrons and Azaleas set within a mature woodland setting.
The Walled Garden has mixed borders to provide a riot of colour for the summer months, with ancient tin smelting kettles used as water features. Unusual, rare and exotic plants plus specimens new to cultivation provide a wide range of interest for visitors and garden enthusiasts alike.
The ‘Bothy’ Tearoom serves cream teas, light refreshments and has plant sales. Group visits and guided tours are available by prior arrangement.
