About Trewithen Gardens

Trewithen is a glorious 18th-century house built by Thomas Edwards and decorated in Rococo style. It forms a backdrop for beautiful gardens laid out by George Johnstone in the 1920's, and lovely as the house is, it is the gardens that have given Trewithen its international acclaim.

These superb gardens are renowned for brilliant splashes of colour at every season, they show an abundance of camellias, rhododendrons, magnolias and numerous other exotic plants and shrubs, as well as magnificent ancient trees.

Here and there amongst the beautifully manicured lawns there is always something to draw the eye, flights of old stone steps adorned with statutory and urns overflowing with lovely blooms, lead to exquisitely laid out terraces and the woodland gardens are fringed by fine parkland where visitors can explore the rich wildlife of the estate.

Plants and flowers raised in Trewithens' Nursery Garden are offered for sale in a Plant Sales area. This is adjacent to a delightful tea-room where visitors may enjoy morning coffee or a delicious after-noon tea. Children are kept entertained in the well thought out attractive children's play area, and there is a video presentation of both house and garden.

This is one of the West Country's finest country estates and is a "must see" for any visitor to this part of the lovely Cornish landscape.
