  • Lovely well maintained gardens with a maze. Very similar to Trebah Gardens which is next door but this is "National Trust" so free to enter if your a member. Lots of walking, sometimes quite a steep incline but plenty of seats to have a rest and catch your breath and admire the scenery.
  • Another easy choice for NT members, and worth the money for non-members too. A maze, water, tree ferns, great views, Durgan village at the bottom. For more exercise, take a left turn at the bottom and follow the coast path around to Rosemullion Head with views across Falmouth bay to St. Anthony lighthouse, then back via Mawnan Smith.
  • A great place out for the day with extremely scenic walks and will also keep children occupied for the day. It can get busy so it's sometimes worth going early!
  • A beautiful place whatever the weather. Nice walk down to the river
  • Beautiful gardens any time of year, and walks along the Helford.
