TRURO Cornwall TR3 6LQ
When staying at our luxury Cornish cottages this month, why not wrap up and visit some of the best gardens in Cornwall. Take your dog with you and enjoy a wintery walk through the woodlands and grounds in the local area too.
Have a look below at the gardens, close to our cottages, which are open throughout November and see what beautiful plants are providing a colourful burst in the colder months.
Throughout November, these tranquil gardens located near Truro and Falmouth are home to several exotic plants. With 12 hectares of the garden to explore, you will come across hydrangeas, rhododendrons and ginger lilies providing the gardens with a splash of colour. The gardens will also be hosting some lectures at the Barn Restaurant, talking about all manner of topics from Cornwall heritage to the Cornish language.
The sub-tropical paradise that is Trebah Gardens, near Falmouth, have a stunning coastal backdrop and one of the finest gardens in the county. In November, head to the garden to enjoy the spectacular trees which dominate the landscape. There is also many workshops this weekend, November 12th to 13th, where you will learn all about the winter flowers and how to make a trug basket.
Tresillian House and Gardens
The formal garden at Tresillian House in Newquay is worth a trip for a walk around the ornamental lake and stroll through the lawns. There is also the orchard to explore, home to more than 110 types of apples. Head gardener John Harris also leads organised tours through the expansive gardens where you learn tips on winter gardening and the best seasonal fruits and veg.
Longcross Victorian Gardens
On the north coast of Cornwall, the public gardens of Longcross Victoria Gardens are lovely to see in the winter months. The garden remains in its Victorian layout, and still show their original finery. The gardens were purposefully constructed to be beautiful all year round, and any plants you see in the gardens that you love are available to buy too.
Remember to wrap up warm for a day out walking in the gardens of Cornwall, and if you have your dog with you, be wary of any restricted areas which may not allow dogs.
