2020 season

Coronavirus: visitor information


Covid19 Update 

The team have taken every possible step to safeguard the welfare of staff and potential visitors here across Trewithen.

We have therefore with enormous regret decided that we will not be reopening the Gardens or the Tea Shed again in 2020. The House remains closed for renovation works.

This conclusion was not reached without careful discussion and consideration of all the challenges that we would face in complying with social distancing. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Trewithen next Spring from 1st March 2021 and thank you all for your continued support.

For all bookings and enquiries please do email secretary@trewithenestate.co.uk and you will be contacted shortly.

23rd March 2020, 

It is with a truly heavy heart that we will be closing the gardens until further notice. Our social media will keep you all up to date with regular posts and news.

The safety of our visitors and staff is always our priority and after following government guidelines over the past few weeks, we have come to this extremely difficult decision.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during these difficult times.





The House is now CLOSED for a restoration and alteration project.

Home to the same family for more than 300 years and an International Camellia Garden of Excellence, Trewithen’s horticulture, Champion Trees, intriguing pathways and unexpected treasures are both memorable and exceptional.
