Trengwaiton Gardens near Penzance

Trengwainton Gardens were given to the National Trust in 1961, 25 acres of fairly level paths, mostly accessible to wheelchair users.

Many Cornish gardens are at their best when the rhododendrons and azaleas are in bloom and I am sure this garden would have been beautiful in the earlier months too.  But  I visited this garden in July and was impressed by the cottage garden planting, especially the kitchen garden with all the traditional cottage garden flowers – Sweet peas, Hollyhocks, Corn flowers to name a few and a variety of vegetables.

From the terrace you can see for miles across the sea from St Michael’s Mount to The Lizard.

Small shop and pleasant tea house and walled tea garden – a sun trap.
