Cornwall Living

Late Summer Colour

East to west; Cornwall is famous for its magical gardens and some magnificent houses.

With its unique microclimate, Cornwall has an abundance of exotic plants to wonder at, and sheltered, sub-tropical, gardens to explore; we suggest a few to visit at this time of the year.

And not just gardens surrounding stately homes; many of our towns have well-established mature small parks, most notably Kimberley Park in Falmouth with it’s fine ornamental trees, many of which are admired by Kew Gardens staff! Even the Minack Theatre, perched high above the Atlantic Ocean and glorious Porthcurno beach with its white sand and clear turquoise waters, is not just famous for its theatrical productions; but hosted a visit from Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time to admire its exotic garden with plants that are more at home in the Canary Islands or South Africa.
