Garden Visit to Trewidden House and Gardens

Join us for a unique opportunity to enjoy a delicious two-course lunch in the splendid surroundings of this Grade II listed manor house by kind courtesy of Alverne and Annabel Bolitho.

Created by the family in the 19th century, Trewidden Garden – one of the Great Gardens of Cornwall – hosts more than 300 magnolias (including five champion trees) and camellias, the National Collection of Rhododendron (Wilson 50 Azaleas), and a magnificent stand of tree ferns within an open cast tin mine.

We hope that the Trewidden Belle and other fine early flowering magnolias will be in bloom when we visit, as well as earlier flowering camellias.

Head Gardener, Richard Morton, will lead us on tours of Trewidden’s 15-acre garden and share the secrets of its horticultural heritage and his extensive knowledge.

This event will also incorporate a guided walk across fields and through woodland to Drift reservoir by Dr Jan Dinsdale, who is Farm Adviser to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

The booking form will be available on this website or in hard copy upon request from Elizabeth Harris in January 2024.
