“Better in spring”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

This was a pleasant garden, but really best seen in spring. In summer it is green with not much else. Trengwainton is better by far.

“Lovely Gardens”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

We pulled in to Trewidden by accident as we were looking for a cuppa on the way back from Lands End. What a result! A lovely cafe with really nice staff and beautiful, historic gardens to explore. We managed with a 1yr old in a buggy and our 10 yr old had a great time following the kids trail getting all the stamps. In the end we spent 2-3 hours exploring and looking at all the beautiful plants, and we are in no way keen gardeners. A lovely little calm oasis after the crowds at Lands End. The Kitchen Garden was a total suntrap. We loved it.

“Beautiful Gardens”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

We visited on a hot day in July and spent 2 very pleasant, cool hours here. Not a huge garen but plenty of interest and a magnificent tree fern pit. You can sit and picnic on the lawn area and I wished that we had time to stop longer. We did have drinks and cakes in the tea room, which were lovely and very reasonably priced. The lady who severd us was really friendly. Can't believe that we have missed this little gem on previously visits to the area.

“A walk in the woods”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Not a special garden like Trengwainton. Lady told us that the rough shale was just for the first few feet and then the paths would be easy for a buggy. Not so. This is not a garden for the disabled.

Was natural and unspoiled

“Not a huge garden, but well worth the visit”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

We visited Trewidden on an overcast day in early May, but the Azealias, Camelias, Magnolias etc. were magnificent. And the tree fern glade really made you feel like you were in a tropical jungle. I should imagine on a sunny day the gardens would be even more magnificent. Also many rare trees for the tree fanatice. A really nice cafe with friendly staff shared with reception. All in all a great garden, but I am a keen amateur Gardener, so I would say that, wouldn't I. The only downside was only one shared WC, although beautifully clean and disability friendly may create long queues on busy days. Well worth a visit.
