Definitely not worth the £5 entrance. Owner was very abrupt. When asked if she was "the lady of the house" replied "yes" and walked past me into her house and locked the door - I heard the clunk. There was not a smile, welcome or...More

I'd wanted to visit this garden for a while and finally managed it this week. Unfortunately we wished we hadn't bothered. The £5 entrance fee is very steep for the size and quality of the garden. There is some nice planting in a couple of...More

Delightful garden within Truro contains woodland plants and a walled garden. Great visit at any time. I have been in spring,summer and autumn over the years.

I absolutely adore hellebores so made the 2 hour trip down to Bosvigo. Well what a disappointment when you get there. The small gardens are pretty and the colours of the hellebores dotted around are the most lovely shades. It would be worth the drive...More

Don't bother to go early in the season, there is hardly anything to see. The plant sales were closed. A tiny so called woodland walk was more of a shaded area, very small and certainly lacking a woodland. No information to indicate that the garden...More

There are only three quite small areas to this garden, which do not warrant the £5 pp entrance fee. The court yard garden and the hot bed garden were very colourful but the vean garden looked quite neglected. Although plants were advertised as being for...More

Four friends all over 60 visited this garden today. It costs £5 each which goes in an honesty box. A map is by box but is very hard to follow however it only takes about 10 mins to see it all. The box is inside...More

We found this garden to be delightful, with areas of summer planting, the shady part of the garden would have more interest in the spring for the Hellebores etc. Parking is easy and good value for £5. Only comment it is advertised as having a...More
