Self-drive Visit to Bonython, Helston and Pengersick Castle, Praa Sands

More than 20 years in the making, Bonython’s gardens have matured to provide pleasure in all seasons.

The walled garden contains established colour-themed herbaceous borders, which are a delight in June. The Potager has a range of cut flowers, vegetables and herbs, whilst the valley garden offers abundant interest with three lakes and several streams. Sculptures and a growing yew chapel catch the eye as does the circular silver birch wood.

Built in the 1500s, Pengersick is a Tudor Manor. With formal gardens recreated using historically accurate plants and designs, a medieval herb garden and orchard, a Tudor knot garden and a fine selection of heritage roses will be bursting with colour at the time of this visit.

Some of the castle’s rooms may be explored during our visit and the knot garden is best viewed from the Tudor Tower.

The booking form will be published in the Members’ area of this website and be available in hard copy upon request from the organiser in March 2023.
