  • 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!
  • Nice steep walks :-) beautiful gardens down to quiet cove
  • Lovely family day out .GOOD car park etc . Enjoyed access to beach.
  • Beautiful gardens any time of year, and walks along the Helford.
