Trebah Gardens

Trebah Gardens, near Falmouth

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

Trebah Gardens an attraction near Falmouth is one of our favourite places to visit in Cornwall. Situated on the south west coast of Cornwall it 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 rescued by the Hibbert family who set about the enormous task of restoration. There are 25 acres in all with small lakes and cascades which eventually run down to a small secluded 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 rainforest of the lower reaches.
There are 3 acres of hydrangeas which give give superb late summer and autumn interest.
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 Gardens open all year - see website for details. Cafe and Gift Shop.
