Tour Details

Cornwall has many beautiful and historical grand houses, many with their own equally stunning gardens.

We invite you to choose from the list below and we will build an itinerary for you. As a guide please allow 2-3 hours for each house and garden.

We would typically visit one in the morning, stop for lunch at a venue to suit your taste and budget, then visit a second property in the afternoon.

Houses with Gardens

Lanhydrock

A magnificent late Victorian country house with glorious gardens and woodland. This is one of the larger properties to visit.

Pencarrow

The same family have called Pencarrow home for almost 500 years, a Cornish Georgian house with 50 acres of beautiful gardens.

Prideaux Place

Built in 1592 this charming Elizabethan Manor House is still the family home of the same family that had it built, the Prideaux-Brunes.

An enchanting house to visit along with it’s ancient deer park and distant views to Bodmin Moor.

Trerice

A small Elizabethan Manor House with a very special original 16th century glass in the Great Hall window and impressive barrel ceiling in the Great Chamber. This is one of the smaller properties to visit.

St Michael’s Mount

An island just off Marazion is home to St Michael’s Mount, with it’s medieval church and castle. Walk on a cobbled causeway to the island or catch a small boat, depending on the tide. Hundreds of years of fascinating history and beautiful gardens make this a wonderful half-day visit.

Trelissick

A small country house with large gardens set on its own peninsula. Follow meandering paths through the exotic gardens with panoramic views of the Fal Estuary as a back drop.

Cotehele

Perched high above the River Tamar, Cotehele is a Tudor house complete with gardens and even a quay, once used by paddle steamers.

Antony

Still lived in today, this fascinating house tells a story of English Civil War intrigue. Sitting high above the River Lynher the Carew Pole family have lived here for over six hundred years.

Gardens

The Eden Project

Dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World by some, the Eden Project is a very impressive, educational collection of plants. Explore the rainforest and Mediterranean biomes and learn more about the relationships between plants and people across the planet. Occupying a huge disused quarry, the Eden Project demands half a day.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

These romantic and mysterious gardens were completely overgrown until the early 1990s when a group of dedicated gardeners rediscovered the hidden treasures of this incredible sub-tropical location. With more than 200 acres to explore including majestic tree ferns, giant rhubarb and rhododendrons, allow half a day for a visit here.

Trebah

A sub-tropical paradise leading down to a secluded beach on the Helford River. Magnificent arrays of 100 year old rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias.
All set in a beautiful Cornish valley with over four miles of footpath. Allow half a day to make the most of this wonderful garden.

Glendurgan

A peaceful and exotic garden in an informal setting, leading to a jungle-like lower valley. Enjoy a stroll through the garden until you reach the unspoilt hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River. Why not try the maze for a challenge?

Godolphin

An ancient and atmospheric estate, the house only open for a short time each year but the gardens are open for far longer. Explore the medieval garden, one of the most important in Europe.
