A sub-tropical garden built on a steep hillside which enchants the visitor not just with its exotic planting but with some beautiful views to St Mawes Castle and Carrick Roadsbeyond.

There's a terrace where teas and light refreshments are served, which was a nice surprise. It's only open on Wednesdays and Sundays, so plan well, but it's worth it. The leaflets say it's one of...

While this was a quiet and restful activity, the paths are not really suitable for buggies or young children. There are a lot of steep steps to negotiate. The gardens are lovely and we really enjoyed the views!

Lovely to spend an hour exploring gardens with kids and taking in the views - just what we wanted in order to relax and do something different which wouldn't take up to much time - work off that pastime!
