We travel south pausing at Killerton Gardens (NT) - A beautiful Georgian House with a beautiful year-round garden with rhododendron, magnolias and formal lawns. After a Garden visit, we continue to our hotel for our 4-night stay.


Today we visit two gardens that are located close to each other but are, individually, very different. Penjerrick Gardens was created 200 years ago and is a peaceful 15-acre, sub-tropical, spring-flowering garden with fascinating views of the sea and considerable historical and botanical interest. We continue to Trebah Gardens - a spectacular 26-acre Cornish ravine garden, rated among the 80 finest gardens in the world. This sub-tropical paradise is home to a unique collection of rare and exotic plants, trees and shrubs.


We make our way to The Lost Gardens of Heligan. A genuine secret garden lost for decades. Now, with an incredible 200 acres of gardens and estate to explore we enjoy a guided tour. Relax in the afternoon in the quintessential Cornish fishing village of Mevagissey and discover its quaint streets lined with fisherman’s cottages, pubs, cafes, galleries and shops.


Today we visit Trewithen Gardens - One of only 5 gardens in the UK that are recognised by the International Camellia Society as a ‘Garden of Excellence’ with a magnificent collection of not only camellias but also rhododendron, magnolias and many rare trees and shrubs. We continue to Trelissick Gardens (NT) – set in more than 400 acres of sweeping parkland with beautiful views of the Fal River and Estuary. Discover a vast collection of sub-tropical plants, shrubs and spring bulbs.


Departing St Austell we visit Mount Edgcumbe House & Gardens, a Grade 1 Historic landscape and 10-acres of garden in English, French & Italian styles of the 18th-20th century in a spectacular seaside setting by shingle beaches which includes a National Collection of Camellias as well as many other shrubs and plants. We return to the Midlands during the late afternoon.
