Trebah Gardens in Cornwall

Trebah Gardens, near Falmouth

Trebah Gardens, near Falmouth are one of our favourites in Cornwall

Situated on the south west coast of Cornwall, Trebah Garden is a sub-tropical paradise started in the 1840's by the Fox family who were Quakers.
They also built the well-known Glendurgan Gardens run by the National Trust just down the road. From the late thirties until 1981 Trebah Gardens became unloved and overgrown.
It was then restored by the Hibbert family before it became a Trebah Garden Trust in 1990.
There are 26 acres in all with small ponds, lakes and cascades which eventually run down to a small secluded private beach. This is ideal for picnics and has superb views over the river mouth.
Extensive plantings of sub-tropical plants at the top of the garden blend into the rainforest of the lower reaches.
There are 2 acres of hydrangeas which give superb colour and interest from summer to winter.
Trebah is also home to 9 champion trees, defined as being the tallest in the UK or having the widest girth.
We often visited here when holidaying in Cornwall with the children and you will not be disappointed.


Trebah Garden open all year - see website for details.
Dog friendly, Cafe, Beach Cafe, Gift Shop & Plant Centre. New Walled Garden opening May 2023. Disabled access to the Visitor Centre and accessible route round the garden.
