Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gardens are very subjective and this one for us was very well laid out but suffering a lack of maintenance.
Opening for the NGS used to mean a level of quality was assured, but sadly this was not as evident as we would have hoped.
As a visit to extend your day in the gorgeous Lamorna Cove it works well, but be ready for the terrain.
Parking very close.

Stunning. A little oasis. Such a peaceful place to be. Thoughtfully planned. Loved sitting on the many benches and seats and taking in the ambiance. Will visit again. Highly recommended

This beautiful garden set in a sub tropical eco system close to majestic sea cliffs is a masterpiece.
It was created on a cluff face over 20 years by Robert and Carole Moule from land that was scrub and brier.
A monument to their vision and dedication

How beautiful this garden is crafted out of the cliffside above Lamorna Cove and easy to see why it has featured on BBC Gardeners World and in the RHS Garden Magazine. Not much parking but possible to park in Lamorna. Better still have a drink or meal at the Lamorna Wink and ask to leave your car while visiting garden. If you park down at the quay be certain to pay. It's not expensive cameras are watching you. It is an uphill walk so good walking shoes. The garden is worth the effort but remember no toilets.

Fantastic garden created by dedicated owners. Very steep so walking boots recommended + walking poles or stick. Wonderful garden which we look forward to visiting again.

Tim Mowl writes perceptively in his book "Historic Houses of Cornwall" of how the vast majority of Cornish gardens ignore the county's greatest asset - viz, the sea. Chygurno is an exemplum of this. Less than a few hundred yards from the roaring Atlantic you get merely the most fleeting of glimpses of the glorious cornish coastline; an opportunity missed. What you do get is the undeniable impression of two people hewing a garden literally out of the hillside; an undertaking of enormous labour which has taken the best part of twenty years to achieve. It should be mentioned that sensible footwear and strong leg muscles is a must for seeing this garden. Precipitous steps lead down a series of terraces in what resembles a game of gardening snakes and ladders. Moreover, Health & Safety would have a fit at the number of buckets, hoses and other garden detritus which is strewn on the paths where a moment of distraction could send the inattentive visitor sprawling. No refreshments or toilets. An honesty box policy is operated.

Every garden we visited this Spring (2018) was a little behind with blossoming due to to the tough weather late into Spring. This garden is however always inspiring and interesting to visit. Wander along and look at the views, clamber up and down and see how things are developing. Have lunch first at the wonderful Wink then up the hill for an hour or so of pure gardeners pleasure.

Lovely valley garden spread over about 5 acres. Many steps so not really for wheelchairs or people unsteady on their feet. Excellent views and collection of flora. Appreciate the hard work that has gone into setting up these gardens. Reasonable £5.00 entrance fee. Usually open only two days a week, but if you ring them they will usually let you in if they are about.

Our neighbours Robert and Carol have created an astonishing Cornish maritime garden on the edge of a cliff.
It is a joy and not to be missed
