Explore The Gardens Of Cornwall
The Cornwall Festival of Gardens runs from early March to early June each year. It is a riot of colour and perfume. A short break or Spring holiday at this time is an ideal opportunity to find and explore the wonderful variety of Cornwall's gardens.
They include many smaller, private gardens which are opened for a few days each year for charity. These provide Cream teas par excellence, usually! A good example of this is Innis Woods and Gardens at Penryn, with its wonderful bluebell display. The rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas and magnolias provide a magnificent backdrop to the intriguing designs of many of Cornwall's most famous, and very ancient gardens. A full colour brochure of all Cornwall's gardens will be sent to you for you to organize an Itinerary, should you plan a Spring holiday with us.
