What the press say...

Find out what the press have to say about Trewithen House and Gardens.

“Famed for its rhododendrons and magnolias but especially its camellias and wonderful sunken gardens and tree ferns”.  Carol Klein, BBC Gardeners’ World

“It is a real treat in spring to soak up the southerly view from the house down the long serpentine lawn flanked with colour from the ground to the tree canopy.”  Louise Danks, Cornwall Life

“With a tea room, plant sales and nursery as well as some enchanting circular walks you can easily while away your afternoon quite easily.”  West Briton, What’s On

“It has passed down through nearly 10 generations but, incredibly, everyone along the way has looked after things so beautifully that the interior is a flawless time capsule.”  Alice Westgate, Cornwall Today

“Perhaps the most stunning of all is the giant Himalayan “Pink Tulip Tree”, Magnolia campbellii, which flowers in March and early April.  To see a large specimen covered in hundreds of rose pink flowers, initially goblet-shaped before opening to 12in across, is an unforgettable sight.”  Tony Russell, Saturday Telegraph

“An elegant Georgian mansion built in the 1720s for comfort rather than show and little altered over the centuries.  The exotic subtropical garden, created in the Twenties, is one of the loveliest and best-maintained in Cornwall and open all summer.”  Telegraph

“If ever there was a place to make you want to don your frock coats and crinolines, then Trewithen House near Truro epitomises the small country estate beloved of all Jane Austin fans.  Stroll around the thirty acres of tranquil garden that contains a world-class collection of specimens from China to Chile, North America to New Zealand and all points between.”  Visit Cornwall

“This garden is remarkable not just for the number of magnolias it has but also for their size.” Alys Fowler, BBC Gardeners’ World.
