Tremenhere is a fantastic way to spend a few hours. The garden comprises two distinct parts, the old valley garden sheltered by mature Beech trees and moss covered granite boulders has varities of fern and tree fern dotted along its length and has a magical quality that is unmatched by some more established valley gardens in Cornwall. The addition of suculents, restios, bananas and myriad other mediteranean/tropical plants add a wonderful counterpoint , particularly in the summer. Top that with amazing views over Mounts Bay and you have a great place to sit back and relax.
There are a few interesting sculptures dotted around the garden and a good camera obscura. But the highlights are the two James Turrell installations, the skyspace is wonderful and the water space seriously stimulating ( though there is no longer any mention of it on the website and it was closed when we last went). Choose a day when there is some wind and a bit of cloud. Good cafe, if a bit slow!
