On 20 June, we visited Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. This was rated as one of the major new attractions in Cornwall in a beautiful sheltered valley.
The gardens were lovely with woods, a stream and bog garden and scree garden with wonderful vistas and provided a showcase of what could be done for large scale and sub-tropical planting.
Alas, the sculpture / Art element of the garden was disappointing, we felt there was not enough artwork and what there was, the concepts of which were too abstract for the normal visitor to understand. The bulk of the art work seemed to be in the car park area.
The newest piece of artwork was a bull's head, which was hidden in shrubs, which did not display it to its full advantage.
The tearoom although very nice with a good range of food and drinks seemed to be expensive for this kind of venue.
We would not go back to visit this garden again unless there was a drastic change in thinking regarding the artwork. This could be a showcase for brilliant work. Its seems as if it can not make its mind up whether it is a garden with sculptures or a sculpture gallery in a garden.
