  • Self-Drive visit. The Lodge, Fletchersbridge,Bodmin and Sibby Cottage, Tregrehan Mills, St Austell

    In a frost pocket, warmed only in winter by Bodmin Crematorium, Tony Ryde and his late partner, Michael created this three-acre riverside garden at Fletchersbridge, specialising in trees and shrubs. Magnolia, cornus, viburnums, paulownias, davidias and acers all flourish in this informal setting, complemented by ponds, waterfalls and a charming Gothic lodge. Enjoying the embrace of the adjoining Tregrehan Estate, Sibby Cottage is able to grow unusual tender plants, already over 900. Established only four years ago by Shirley and Ray Clemo (formerly of the renowned Pine Lodge Gardens), some large, inherited specimens form the backbone of the garden, whilst new herbaceous and shrub borders are underplanted with hundreds of bulbs. The booking form will be available in March
