Well tended and thoughtfully planted garden, nearly twenty years of hard work by Tina and Dave. Colour mix is fantastic and heights are so carefully planned - and not a weed in sight. Sadly Tina and Dave have parted so the house and garden is for sale and I hope that the eventual buyer will continue to run the business... More

Beautiful private gardens, enjoyed by us all (aged 11, 58 and 79). Wonderful colours, very vibrant. Car parking spaces on the grass verge opposite the garden for about 12 cars. Took loads of photos.

Poppy Cottage Garden covers an acre full of colour with all year round interest. Planted as a series of rooms which are small gardens in themselves, it is brimming with bulbs, herbaceous... More

Visited with children and friends on a warm summers day. Children enjoyed playing in and around we'll tended and thoughtfully created garden. Basked in the sun in a little nook. A great time was had by all.

Probably we were there too early in the season. A nice enough place but no plants in bloom? As I say probably our fault but they were still happy to take our £8 for two adult admissions

A beautifully planted and tended small garden full of ideas and inspiration. Lovely planting combinations in a series of garden rooms. Small nursery selling plants propagated from the garden.

A beautiful garden that looks small but is so cleverly laid out that, once you are inside, it seems large! Running alongside a main road, with only a hedge between you and it, it is like stepping into some kind of paradise. A tour round the garden keeps on revealing lots of new delights and there is even a duck... More

On our visits to Cornwall we have driven past Poppy Cottage Gardens many times but not visited. Finally we did visit and pleased we did. The garden has been beautifully and imaginatively planted and it is nicely laid out. I thought the layout was exceptionally good as it made the limited space feel much bigger. Additionally the garden and plants... More
