March and hopefully goodbye to the storms that brought so much destruction to the British Isles. We are told that March should be a much gentler month and we focus on the Gardens in Cornwall.
My wife and I visit Cornwall in March every year and although the weather can be mixed it has never stopped us visiting the amazing gardens in Cornwall.
Our favourite must be the gardens at Caerhays Castle, set just above a beach on the rugged Cornish Coast. The gardens are informal and spread over a large area on the side of a wooded hill. Here you will see magnificent Magnolias, some with flowers the size of your head! in all different shades of white, pink and purple. As you explore the paths you will also walk amongst many different varities of daffodils in the more open glades, which are dappled in the early Spring sunshine. If you are a Camellia addict then you will be in Camellia heaven, with different colours and varieties at every turn collected from Plant Hunters hundreds of years ago.
You should allow at least 3 hours for your visit here and you will need to be reasonably mobile to exlore the paths and trails.
There is a small tearoom serving teas, coffes and light lunches. Walking or stout shoes are recommended.
If you wish to stay over and visit other gardens then visit our Gardens in Cornwall page where we have all the information you need for your visits.
