Spring is one of the best times to visit Scorrier with its bluebells, camellias and rhododendrons. Originally built in 1780 by John Williams as a mine office, the gardens, where William Lobb was once employed, were planted later. In addition to the gardens, Caroline and Richard Williams are kindly permitting us to view the formal herbaceous border, conservatory and large walled garden where vegetables are grown.
Newly opened to the public following Richard and Trish Stone’s ongoing restoration, Trevince comprises 25 acres of parkland, a one-acre walled garden, an ornamental woodland walk, an orchard and pinetum, and a collection of endangered conifers. Current renovation projects relate to a brick summerhouse in the Pond Garden and citrus cultivation.
