Our View

A beautiful 15-acre sub-tropical woodland garden. Entrance fee is via an honesty box and there are no toilets, tearoom or other visitor facilities, but what you do get in abundance is immense tranquility and the thrilling feeling that you could be walking through the jungle in another continent. Rhododendrons, camellias, magnolias, azaleas, tree ferns and bamboos thrive in the garden, and it’s the home of the renowned Penjerrick and Barclayi hybrid rhododendrons. Created 200 years ago by Robert Were Fox FRS and his three children, this luxuriant valley garden can be reached via a wooden bridge. It has ponds, gunnera and enormous tree ferns and the garden is at its peak in April and May

About the area

Discover Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.

In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
