Cornwall’s wonderfully mild climate, encompassing early springs, late autumns and bright summer days, allows the county to play host to a wide range of beautiful, exciting and unusual horticultural treasures. It’s true that no stay in the county would be complete without a visit to one of Cornwall’s Great Gardens; Trevalsa Court Hotel is conveniently located to make exploring these as simple as possible.
Less than ten minutes drive from the hotel, you will find The Lost Gardens of Heligan, an impeccably restored botanical gardens, steeped in history and complete with lakes, spectacular design styles, productive vegetable gardens and Europe’s only remaining pineapple pit.
Similarly, Caerhays Castle and Gardens, which is set against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean and boats one of the most highly regarded magnolia collections in the whole of the UK, is less than twenty minutes drive.
For something further afield, Trebah Garden, located near Falmouth, is awash with colour throughout the year as vibrant plants tumble down the land towards a secluded beach on the Helford River. For the most exciting route there take a drive along the Roseland Peninsula then hop across the Helford aboard the quaint King Harry Ferry.
Of course, if exploring nature’s own back garden is more your style, the hotel boasts immediate access onto the South West Coast Path, allowing you to explore the flora and fauna along this magnificent stretch of coastline without even having to venture too far from the hotel bar!
At the end of a long day of adventuring, you can retire to our own perfectly manicured sub-tropical gardens, soak in the sea views and wait for your delicious dinner, all made using produce from local gardens and farms.
All this right on our doorstep and we haven’t even mentioned the magnificent Eden Project.
