March at Trebah Gardens

April 10, 2014 by becca.lazar No Comments

Winter is not often a season associated with flowers, however late winter is one of our favourites here in Cornwall. Magnolia, Rhododendron and Camellias all flourish, the gardens are coming back to life and carpets of daffodils starting to appear everywhere.

Trebah is wonderful at all time of year with a large children’s play area and lots of interesting areas for exploring, the garden is built in a valley leading down to its very own beach on the Helford River. Even in March people are sitting enjoying the sunshine and eating ice-creams from the Boathouse Café, while dogs play in the water. Trebah is also home to the joint tallest Magonlia in the UK, an incredible sight which flowers in March.

There is a stream running down the middle of the valley leading into a beautiful pond, complete with a bridge and this year they have been building an outdoor amphitheatre.

Trebah also has a great restaurant and shop selling lots of local produce, these are free to visit without paying entry to the gardens.
