Best Gardens to visit in Cornwall

Cornwall is accounted as being the 41st most densely county in the UK out of 47. Now that isn’t a lot when there is around 550,000 living within the area however that does mean that there are a lot of places to go to. It is the 9th biggest county and within the county, there are many gardens to explore. There is a lot of natural beauty and it has some surreal natural environment making you think, are we actually still in the UK?

Caerhays Castle and Gardens

Caerhays Gardens is situated in  60 acres of woodlands gardens within the valley of South Cornish Coast, overlooking Porthluney Cove. This place alone has many historic events as it was owned by the Grandson of Micheal Williams, J.C. Williams who established it from just a castle into a garden.

The garden had been created under the inspiration from an expedition in China and was created using the plants; rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias and camellias.

Rhododendrons                     Azaleas                          Magnolias                  Camelias

These flowers are breathtaking to look at during its peak when it has bloomed hence the reason as to why it is known as a spring garden. Another reason for this is because of the fact that the garden is only open during the period of Spring, 7 days a week between 10 am and 5 pm.

Many plantsmen and gardeners throughout the UK are very fond to come to this lush garden. There are over 80 UK record-sized trees in the gardens and those who get a chance to take a little snap of the vicinity could potentially get themselves a couple of pounds by selling the picture on to a website or a photography competition. You could even be a photographer on the day for someone who may have a special event going on. Who knows? You can even hold your wedding here.

With a unique microclimate, why not come down and visit the garden while you can.

10 Beautiful Places in Cornwall

10 Beautiful Places in Cornwall

Must See Locations In Cornwall

Cornwall is a prime location for holidays in the UK as it is such a beautiful and elegant part of the country. There are so many locations to visit such as incredibly bright coastlines, historical towns and many activities to be had such as surfing. Cornwall is a must see place so if you are planning a visit, or are just curious; then read on to see 10 of the most beautiful places in Cornwall.

Botallack Mine


Botallack mine is a former tin mine that is located in between Penwith and Pendeen which are both villages in St. Just. These mines are long abandoned and are a beautiful piece of Cornish history and are a testament to Cornwall’s industrial past. This mining area was made even more famous after being featured in the 2015 series Poldark as the setting for Nampara House. The best thing about this attraction is that it is completely free so you can take a long 1.6km walk through the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and discover the giant stone engine houses. After this, be sure to head on over to Botallack Count House which used to house the mine captains.

The Camel Estuary


North Cornwall is home to the popular destination known as the Camel Estuary. This breathtaking area is full of beautiful scenic views such as luscious green fields and beautiful crystal waters. The Camel Estuary is also home to other incredible areas too such as Daymer Bay and the Rock of Polzeath which are both great places to see amazing views of the Cornish coast. You can walk or cycle through this incredible scenery and discover creeks, rivers and seren farmland all teeming with life and natural beauty.



Newquay is considered the place to be in the UK if you want to surf. The patchy beaches along Cornwall’s coast that make up this area attracts many people who want to practice their surfing or just relax. Also, Crantock Beach is located just outside of the City Centre which is great for people who prefer a larger beach to just spend time with friends and family relaxing and sunbathing. Great Western Beach is another popular beach in the Newquay area and is home to many cafés for you to stop and get a bite to eat and a cuppa. Near this beach is also the Headland Hotel which overlooks yet another beach, Fistral Beach. This hotel is a stylish red brick Victorian building so it stands out among the rest and you won’t miss it.

The Minack Theatre and Porthcurno Beach


This area of Cornwall is located in the far west of Cornwall and is home to the Minack Theatre which is carved into the cliff above the scenic views and open air of Porthcurno Beach. This beach is also famous for being one of the UK’s most romantic beaches and has incredible views of the majestic Atlantic ocean.

St. Loy


If you go towards the south west coast of Cornwall and you will discover a beautiful area full of valleys, boulders and beautiful sandy beaches. You can see all the incredible sights and beautiful Cornish coves by taking a 9km hike which follows the section of the South West Coast Path. This is convenient because the path finishes close to the Lamorna Cove Hotel which is located through some woodness and past some historical monuements. After that long of a hike there is no doubt you will want somewhere to sit, eat, rehydrate and sleep and there is no better place as Lamorna Cove Hotel. Also close by is the Logan Rock headland which is located over Lizard Point which is the UK’s most southerly tip.

The Lizard and Kynance Cove


As mentioned earlier, close to the Lamorna Cove Hotel and is the UK’s most southerly point. It is also an idyllic peninsula surrounded by farmland which contrasts with the beautifully aquamarine coloured Atlantic Ocean. There is no other area in Cornwall, or in fact the UK itself, that has such beautiful contrast between ocean and greenery. Located around this area are other natural beauties to be discoverd like Trebah Garden and the Helford River.

Trevose Head


This is one of many locations in Cornwall which start with the letters ‘Tre’. These letters mean ‘homestead’ and this place is certainly a breathtaking one. Home to many amazing panoramic views all the way up the north coast of Cornwall. This area is also neighboured with the county of Devon. So if you feel that you want a change of scenery for a day then you could always head to Trevose Head for the views and then pop into Devon for the day. Trevose Head watches the sea between Newquay and Padstow and has been safely guiding fishermen and the likes to shore ever since 1847. More amazingly, the lighthouse is still active today and you can see the beams from up to 37km away!

Eden Project


This globally recognised attraction is an incredible sight to behold and is something straight out of a sci-fi movie. It is home to three giant domes each holding their own unique and wonderful biomes arising from the former clay pits that surrounds the site. The Eden Project is also the world’s largest indoor rainforest and is home to thousands of species of plants and animals. There are also a range of exhibits and events that are held here so there is entertainment for everyone.

Bedruthan Steps


In between Padstow and Newquay lie the Bedruthan Steps which are stone stacks that have been separated from the mainland over hundreds of years due to sea erosion. There is a local legend that a giant named ‘Bedruthan’ used these stones to make a shortcut across the bay for him to walk across. These steps are close by the south west coast path too so you can take a short walk and then relax at the Carnewas Tearoom which is the best angle to see the Bedruthan Steps.

The Roseland


This area in Cornwall is incredibly unspoilt and the views here are amazing. From beaches, rivers, woodland and countryside there is nothing here that won’t cease to amaze. There are also a handful of small villages located nearby which are St Mawes, St Just in Roseland and Portloe. You can also take a ferry or kayak down the river and discover areas of incredible beauty.
