Trebah Garden, Falmouth

(4.8/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
A subtropical garden in the middle of England, Trebah Garden is an incongruous 10.5 hectare (26 acre) swath of lush greenery situated in the countryside. The gardens were private until 1987, when the Hibbert family opened them to the public. This same family gave the gardens, house, and cottages to the Trebah Garden Trust, so that they can be preserved for future generations. Make your first stop on the grounds the Hibbert Center, where you'll learn about the family, the house, and the gardens' history. Purchase your tickets at the center and roam the gardens freely. Put Trebah Garden into our Falmouth trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Great Gardens, and a nice walk down to the beach and have an ice cream. The Americans used this place in WW2 for beach landings. You do need to be fit to get back to the top of the Gardens  more »
  • Visited the garden to see the spring flowers. I was not disappointed. Beautiful camellias and magnolias.  more »

  • Spectacular plants, trees and ponds. Beach nearby too. Well maintained. The entry ticket is valid for 7 days, plenty of parking.
  • Rhododendrons in early summer, hydrangeas in mid summer, beach all year. Not forgetting the tree ferns and gunnera. Shame the ice cream kiosk on the beach closed at 3:30pm on the day I visited. Plenty of paths through the garden Get a BBC Gardeners World 2 for 1 card in April to make this more affordable/enjoyable.
  • Outstanding Day out especially when the suns out - checkout the beach at the bottom, I wore light swimming trunks and had a dip - it was a hot day!
  • Initially we struggled to find Trebah using Sat Nav travelling from our campsite near Penzance but once there it was well worth the stress .We enjoyed the variety of planting schemes in late June 2016 especially the mature Giant Redwood trees ,the water gardens, the shady areas with tree ferns and spent an hour on the beach with a picnic watching the boats before venturing back up the valley to sit in the shade around the amphitheatre .We took our dog who loved the walks and on a very hot day we were able to find several shady areas to sit and enjoy the naturalistic landscaping. We had a walk through the Garden shops at the end and I could have been tempted to purchase several of the very reasonably priced plants but as we were camping for another week I decided against it .The Restaurant food looked very appealing and the toilet facilities were spotless .We would recommend a day out at Trebah and plan to return when next we're in the area .
  • This is a wonderful verdant garden going down to a small (historic) beach - it is full of enormous trees, tree ferns and other tropical-feeling planting. I watched a very atmospheric performance by CScape Dance - Neptunalia - and I was charmed!
