If you were hoping to find a family attraction in Falmouth that enables you to enjoy the great Cornwall scenery that we all know and love, then Trebah Garden is just the one. The sub-tropical gardens enjoy a spectacular backdrop of coastal views and are home to exotic plants from all over the world, pretty ponds and even a private beach.
More than four miles of footpath wind their way around this picturesque valley garden and there’s something new to see in every season. Spring is an exciting time in any garden, but this one comes into its own as the one hundred year old rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias begin to flower. The giant gunnera always impresses visitors during the summer, and autumn sees Hydrangea Valley send blue and white tufts across the peaceful Mallard Pond.
If your visit inspires you to do more with your own garden you’ll find plants and flowers on sale so you can take a little something home to get you started. Those on dog friendly holidays will be pleased to learn that dogs are welcome, and the gardens are open all year, with free entry in January.
