Trewithen means ‘house of the trees’ and with 30 acres of surrounding woodland gardens and more than two hundred acres of parkland, the name couldn’t be more appropriate.
Revered as a masterpiece of landscape gardening, Trewithen’s south-facing great glade was developed at the time of the great plant hunting expeditions between 1910 and 1932. Astonishing seed collections were sent back to England and, thanks to the expertise of horticulturalist George Johnstone, who inherited the house in 1904, many were successfully cultivated at the Cornish Manor – ensuring a botanical reputation that endures to this day.
Offering a rich history and huge variety of beautiful specimens – if you are looking for gardens to visit in Cornwall, a trip to Trewithen is a must.
