Owner description: Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is a major new attraction in West Cornwall which opened mid September 2012. In a beautiful sheltered valley, the woods, stream and dramatic vistas provide a perfect setting for large scale exotic and sub-tropical planting. Interwoven with this there is also an evolving programme of high quality contemporary art installations. Inspirational....contemplative... a joy to visit... Dramatic landscape and planting provide the backdrop to contemplative but inspirational artworks. Internationally renowned artists, such as James Turrell and David Nash have interacted with the garden to create site specific permanent work which harmonise with the setting. The land also provides a forum for ever changing temporary, or even ephemeral arts in all its forms. Ticket Prices: Standard Adult : £8.00 Concessions: £6.50 11 - 15 Years: £4.50 Under 11: Free Family Ticket (Two Adults and Two 11 - 15 Years): £20.00 Season Ticket: £30.00 Opening Times: Daily, 10am - 5pm

What a great garden - an amazing collection of rarely seen plants within a fantastic setting. The views are an added bonus. We spent hours here - stopped for a truly delicious lunch - and then carried on. Please don't label the plants - it is so naturalistically planted that they would be an eyesore. A list of all the plants is available to browse - ask in the shop. This garden is cared for by passionate people who love their plants - it is thought provoking and exciting - what more could you want?!

“Great gardens”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

The garden is nicely laid out with several different aspects culminating in the views over st. Michaels mount at the top of the hill.

The plants could do with labels so that I knew what I was looking at, hence 4 stars not 5.

“A newly-discovered haven”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Peaceful and obviously created with care; the gardens are well cared for and the sculptures are growing in number and are all intriguing. The site is easily accessible with some hilly corners; perfect in early Spring. Views to Mounts Bay appear round many corners. The building houses a café which is pleasant and the newly-established plant shop is sure to go from strength to strength. Good luck with this new venture - Cornwall needs more like you!

“A great place to visit”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

This is a place of exceptional vision and we cannot recommend it too highly. If, like us, you enjoy views, gardens, a woodland walk, empathetic sculptures and installations as well as a relatively inexpensive cafe you will find it both relaxing and inspiring. Very good value for a modest charge and not too difficult to find compared with other west Cornwall gardens. It's going to be top of our to-do list next time we visit the area, which is saying a lot.
