An historic private estate boasting one of the loveliest gardens in England. The Gardens will be open from March 1st to June 30th for the 2018 season. Home to the same family for more than 300 years and an International Camellia Garden of Excellence, Trewithen’s horticulture, Champion Trees, intriguing pathways and unexpected treasures are both memorable and exceptional.
One of the most elegant examples of eighteenth century architecture in Cornwall Trewithen House is an architectural gem that hasn’t significantly changed its outward appearance since 1715 when Philip Hawkins first bought it. Since then, ten generations of the same family have lived there. If you’re exploring historic houses in Cornwall, a trip to Trewithen is a must.
From Edinburgh to Essex, Southport to Scarborough, no garden has gone undiscovered in this quest to find Britains Top 100 Gardens. Some people have asked me along the way, "so what does it take to be a Top 100 Garden" and the answer is quite a simple one, "if a garden is on your mind long after you have visited it, now that's a Top 100 Garden" I say! Take Trewithen Gardens for instance. This garden along with its seasoned head gardener, really has stood the test of time. Trewithen is somewhat a garden of discovery and adventure no matter the weather, yes that's right, no matter the weather, this garden fails to disappoint even when it's raining, that's madness you must be saying, not when you've tasted the Tea Sheds homemade soup it's not! Trewithen has to be in your diary, as no visit to Cornwall is complete until you've visited these great gardens and I haven't even started on the house!
Ideally located in the picturesque town of Lostwithiel, dine in the heart of a historical destination. With many dishes to satisfy your tastebuds, fall under the spell of their modern and stylish British cuisine. *
