Lose yourself in the three valleys of Glendurgan Garden - full of fun, natural beauty and amazing plants.
Discover giant rhubarb plants in the jungle-like lower valley and spiky arid plants basking in the sunny upper slopes.
Wander through the garden down to the beautiful hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River: a place to watch birds and boats, skim stones and build sand-castles.
Find a boat-seat, gigantic tulip-trees and ponds teeming with wildlife. Learn about the Fox family who created this 'small peace [sic] of heaven on earth.'
