A splendid N.T. Garden. Sometimes seemingly lacking a little t.l.c. but always worth a visit if you live in a cooler part of the U.K. as the plant collection is outstanding. Don't miss the Cornish Cream Tea - highly recommended.

Our first visit to Tregwainton and it didn't disappoint. Probably at its most colourful in early spring but I'm sure would be a great place for a stroll at any time of year. Plenty of unusual trees and shrubs to keep the plantsman interested and...More
