This was our first visit here as it has always been closed when we visited Cornwall in the past. We set off up the gentle slope through the trees in the Tree Fern Glade, then William Walk and up the Long Walk. We glanced at the Upper Pond (mostly weed covered) with its bridge before continuing uphill to the Terrace.... 更多
Spent a couple of glorious hours exploring the absolutely beautiful gardens, admiring the views from the terrace and wishing we lived in the house. Then to top it off had the best cream tea ever. Blackcurrant jam is the best. Plus hubby was kept happy due to the savoury tea- the cheese scones were delicious. Must visit!!
Only had time to nip in for some tea and scones but had to be done given the reputation we had to stop - got 2 lovely big scones each and loads of jam and cream with a nice pot of tea - only down side was the bloomin wasps but what can you do if you want to sit... 更多
We went as the rain was clearing. On walking around the kitchen garden, local school children had been involved in making some Pirate Scarecrows.They were brilliant and very imaginative. The garden is colourful with good use made of local fawna and flora.
The weather was typical of Cornwall in the early summer, grey and drizzling, when we set out to explore a little of Trengwainton. As both of us are disabled, we realized that we had no chance of seeing all of even this small garden. Madron, and the gardens, are well signposted for those of you, like us, with no sat... 更多
I visited Trengwainton on a Heritage Open Day. I walked as far as I could, saw the sea and sat in the loggia and read my book before exploring the walled gardens, art gallery and second hand book shop. The war time garden was very informative as was the information accompanying the herbs. The scarecrows were amusing. I loved that... 更多
My wife and I visited here partly because it gave us a good chance for a decent length dog walk. The gardens were delightful with a real tropical feel as you walk through the avenues of tree ferns. There are excellent views from the higher ground and an well maintained kitchen garden. We'd go again.
The gardens are lovely and extensive and I'm sure look an absolute picture in Spring when the rhododendrons and azaleas are in bloom. In late summer and autumn the only colour comes from hydrangeas which is a bit of a limiter. The real heart of Trengwainton is the ancient kitchen which is an absolute gem and worth the admission on... 更多
I worked at Trengwainton as a volunteer for 11 years & loved the garden & the passion that the then Head Gardener had which was shared by staff & volunteers. I left because I felt it was becoming badly run down which I said to the management. 3years later I visited with friends only the find the garden in many... 更多
