The various members of the Bolitho family, along with their Head Gardeners, have made Trewidden Garden in west Cornwall a very different and truly special by creating a mysterious and wonderful square(ish) garden with a maze of paths meandering through it.


You will find ponds dotted here and there, together with reminders of the industrial mining heritage of the site too. Each part of the garden is intimate and different, whether it be the newly restored walled garden, the rock garden with its collection of Erythroniums, the Tree Fern Dell or the pond garden with the Whale’s Tail.


The gardens are also home to one of England’s best collections of Magnolias and Rhododendrons – as well as a collection of over 300 Camellias. Magnolia delavayi for example, found at altitude in the Himalayan fringes of south west China, Magnolia delavayi is a summer flowering evergreen tree, which produces large waxy cream coloured blooms. The specimen at Trewidden is just coming into flower and can be found in the Higher Garden.


To ensure you get the most out of your trip to Trewidden, you can book a guided tour of the garden with Head Gardener Richard Morton me ansum's. Richard has an extensive knowledge of all things green and gives guided walks around the garden whilst imparting his knowledge about the many species of plants and trees growing there.



Trewidden Garden is a magnificent Cornish garden that is open to the public during the Spring, Summer and beginning of Autumn every year. Opening times
