Discover the magic of this beautiful Cornish valley garden, near Falmouth in south Cornwall, which is actually rated among the 80 finest gardens in the world. It's also a favourite for Titchmarsh too inum! Explore under canopies bursting with exotic blooms and follow vibrant tunnels of colour that cascade down to their very own secluded beach on the Helford River.

 

Trebah offers the visitor a year round experience. In early spring, Trebah comes alive with a colourful array of 100-year-old rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias. In summer, the giant Gunnera (which looks like a giant rhubarb my luvvers) is a must see for young and old.

 

In autumn, Hydrangea Valley casts clouds of china blue and soft white across Mallard Pond and in winter, the spectacular champion trees dominate the landscape, the Bamboozle looks striking, whilst plants from the southern hemisphere can also be seen happily flowering away here too.

 

Trebah also has their very own secluded, private beach on the Helford River, with views that stretch out to the open sea. Known as Polgwiddon Cove, its a south-facing and tidal beach, which is the perfect halfway point to rest and enjoy the view.

 

A small, narrow passageway of steps takes you over the South West Coast Path and onto the private beach. The view opens up a wonderful maritime scene, of small sailing boats moored in the waters, a shingle beach and rock pools. A perfect place to skim stones!
