Enjoy a spring-time outing

Originally purchased by Edward Bolitho and planted by his son Thomas in the mid 19th century, Trewidden Garden remains in the care of the Bolitho family.

Its 15 acres have become nationally acclaimed for their collection of magnolias, camellias and tree ferns, and continues to establish new collections and plants of national importance. With spring on the horizon, it’s the perfect garden to explore with children, and they’re sure to love completing the Trewidden Trail as adults adopt a more leisurely pace.

Highlights include The Tree Fern Dell, one of the finest collections of Dicksonia Antarctica (the soft tree fern) in the northern hemisphere, and the Champion Trees, which include the gardens’ largest magnolia.
It’s also home to the National Collection of Rhododendron Kurume Azalea Wilson 50 and is an International Camellia Garden of Excellence, with over 300 camellias and magnolias!

All of this and more, plus the newly refurbished Kitchen & Tea Room make Trewidden Garden a must-visit as the weather starts to warm.
