Welcome to Trewithen
An historic private estate boasting one of the loveliest gardens in England.
Home to the same family for more than 300 years and an International Camellia Garden of Excellence, Trewithen’s horticulture, Champion Trees, intriguing pathways and unexpected treasures are both memorable and exceptional.
Trewithen means ‘house of the trees’ and with 30 acres of surrounding woodland gardens and more than two hundred acres of parkland, the name couldn’t be more appropriate.
Trewithen has nearly 30 acres of woodland gardens and about 200 acres of surrounding parkland. It is a fascinating place to visit in Cornwall – full of hidden-away areas, magnificent flora and fauna and stunning countryside views. Be prepared to go off the beaten track to discover all sorts of fascinating trees and shrubs – many of them the result of often dangerous plant hunting expeditions to far-flung places. Don’t forget to visit our red squirrel pen – part of an important project to re-introduce an indigenous species back to their natural habitat in Cornwall – as well as the Trewithen Exhibition and many other highlights of the Gardens, such as the Magnolia Fountain, Camera Obscura and Cockpit!
Offering a rich history and huge variety of beautiful specimens – if you are looking for gardens to visit in Cornwall, a trip to Trewithen is a must.
