Lamorran Gardens is located at Lamorran House in St Mawes.


On entering the garden via the driveway, the gorgeous Koi pool can be seen by the waterfall. This pool is surrounded by various Chusan palms, Trachycarpus Fortunei and Chamaerops Humilis. In the rock face itself, at one end of the pool, Abelia Floribunda shows off its long narrow cerise bells in due season and Erigeron Mucronatus flowers throughout the year.


The pathways continuously divide giving a choice of routes down the garden.


From the lawn a path flanked by a bank of rhododendrons on both sides leads to the terrace passing Rh. Countess of Haddington which never fails to flower each year covering itself with white-flushed pink scented trumpets.


Continuing along, you will come to one of the most spectacular views in the garden, through the archway over the lower garden and sea to St Anthony Head. The flight of steps through the archway, the only straight line in the garden, finishes at the Cyperus pool. Massed plantings of Osteospermum edge the steps as elsewhere in the garden with palms standing as sentinels down the flight of steps.


Other plants at Lamorran include; palms, agaves and aloes, orange gazanias, banksias, cistus, viburnam, protea's and many, many more.



Note: only open during the months of April through to September. No dogs allowed.
