Superb tropical garden with wonderful array of exotic plants. Rather steep in places and need to be careful underfoot but well worth a visit. Superb views across the Fal estuary and delicious cream teas served on the terrace

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.
