A brilliant garden - a must for any keen gardener visiting Roseland. The gardens slope down to the sea and are enclosed in some places, opening magically to the view in others. Lovely range of plants, excellent landscaping, friendly people. A relatively new head gardener...More

So glad that friends recommended we visit this garden. It was lovely, so peaceful. Something interesting at every turn, we didn't find the gardens strenuous the paths are easily negotiable. Enjoyed a lovely coffee and delicious cakes after.

This is a really amazing garden. It is set on a steep slope overlooking the estuary. There is a very cleverly devised numbered route that winds its way down through the garden and then makes its way back up. Every so often there are glimpses...More

Hi. Yes, there is limited but usually sufficient parking on the road outside the garden. There is also a car park in St Mawes, about 10 minutes walk away.
