The National Trust's Trengwainton Gardens, Penzance

The National Trust's Trengwainton Gardens, Penzance

Trengwainton is a country house and garden situated in Madron, near Penzance, which has been in the ownership of the National Trust since 1961.

Nestled away just inland of Mounts Bay are these truly beautiful exotic gardens that are definitely worth a visit for any age group. It is one of our favourite places to visit with lovely walks, streams and private areas to sit and ponder and take in the surrounding beauty. There are wonderful views towards Mounts Bay, St Michaels Mount and The Lizard from the top of the gardens and a lovely walled garden with a delightful second hand bookshop and gift shop.

Our small children love coming for a day out. There is lots to explore and plenty to keep short imaginations captivated, Trengwainton is a fabulously family friendly garden. There are children's trails to follow, children's menus in the tearoom and well-equipped baby-changing facilities.

For those of you with a nose for gardening, this horticultural hotspot is home to magnificent walled gardens growing species not seen anywhere else on mainland Britain. Marvel at the styrax, eucryphia, stewartia and the 'Lobster Claw' - Clianthus puniceus, and discover hybrids created from plant-hunting expeditions to Assam and Burma.

There is a fee to enter the gardens (no charge for NT members), but you can access the very yummy tearoom for free. The food is wonderful, especially the savoury cream teas, soups and between 3pm – 4.30pm you can order a delightful afternoon tea.

Free car parking but please check their website for opening times - please note the venue is only open on certain days of the week and closed between 1st November to mid February.
