About Trewithen Gardens and Parks

One of the loveliest gardens in Cornwall – Trewithen Gardens nails the balance between hidden nooks and sweeping countryside views. Trewithen means ‘house of trees’ so it should come as no surprise that Trewithen Gardens is full of wonderfully woody specimens, from the big blousy Magnolias to graceful Acers. In fact, Trewithen Gardens is home to around 20 champion trees, so-called for reaching the greatest height or girth of their species.
As well as these awe-inspiring trees, Trewithen Gardens is full of fabulous flora and fauna, including a spectacular collection of Camellias, which have earned it the accolade of International Camellia society “Garden of Excellence”. Among the 30 acres of woodland gardens is the Cockpit, where climbing Hydrangeas and exotic Tree Ferns jostle for space under the dappled light of the canopy. Visit in spring when the early flowering Magnolias, Rhododendrons and Camellias are in full swing.
After a wander around the estate grounds, and a peep at the original 18th century house, (the current residence of the Galsworthy family), stop by the cutesy tea shed to fill up on local Cornish produce.
