Restored garden near Truro to open for Cornwall Wildlife Trust event

May 05th, 2015

A recently restored garden situated near Truro and our luxury accommodation in Cornwall is due to open to the public on Sunday May 17th as part of a special event from 2pm to 5pm.

The special opening is part of the Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Open Gardens Scheme, which is now in its 5th year. The Scheme helps to bring beautiful gardens normally kept behind closed doors to the public, as well as helping to raise much needed funds for the Trust.

Poppy Cottage is found near Tregony, Truro, and is designed as a series of small gardens, each featuring their own diversity of shrubs, herbaceous plants, bulbs, and colourful exotic plants, bringing visitors a sight they cannot find anywhere else in Cornwall.

There are also plenty of seating areas where visitors can sit back and take in the surroundings, as well as being able to enjoy a traditional cream tea or Cornish pasty. Visitors can also enjoy an orchard where ducks and chickens wander freely, as well as a small nursery where they can purchase some of the many herbs grown in the garden.

Entry is just £3.50 for adults, while entry for children is completely free, and dogs are also welcome when kept on the lead. For those who cannot visit the gardens on that day, the gardens are also open between May and September on most afternoons.

Poppy Cottage’s gardens are just one of many gardens opening their gates for the event in Cornwall across the year, with other gardens including Old Zanzig near Wadebridge, Higher Trenedden near Pelynt and The Old Watermill at St Mabyn to name a few.
