Gardens

The most beautiful gardens in Cornwall.

Take a trip to the beautiful gardens of Cornwall on your next visit to Boconnoc. 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.
