Gardens

The most beautiful gardens in Cornwall.

Take a trip to the beautiful gardens of Cornwall on your next visit to Boconnoc. The gardens will be open on Saturday 15 May 2021 between 2pm and 5pm and refreshments will be available in the Stable yard.

From the grazing fallow deer in the Deer Park to the centuries-old trees of the ancient woodland, exploring the grounds feels like stepping right into a timeless oil painting.

Begin your tour at the Dorothy Garden, just a quick stroll from the House, where fountains burble and flowers turn their faces to the sun. Bring along a camera to capture the vibrancy of the Shrubbery, which bursts into blossom, from 34 different varieties of hydrangeas to pink and purple rhododendrons and azaleas. And for a special escape, explore the palm-fringed paradise of the Tropical Fountain along the Stewardry Walk. Around a waterfall, pool, and Lady Hamilton’s marble bath, the exotic plants create an ambiance that’s akin to a tropical retreat.

At Boconnoc, you’ll find magnolias, rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas, and a variety of exquisite plant species.
