Hidden Valley Gardens

It has always been our dream to 'retire' to Cornwall and develop a garden with a nursery open to the public.

Eventually after much searching we moved here in November 1999 with a thousand plants and a 10ft X 10ft greenhouse in a large removal van. This had to park a mile up the lane to unload, and all our possessions were delivered in small loads.

The property is a barn conversion that needed extensive works before we could open. We had the builders in for over a year, but they just finished in time for opening at Easter 2001.

cornwall-hiddenv2An intimate 3 acre award-winning cottage style garden and specialist plant nursery nestled in a secluded hidden valley in Cornwall. There are 26 identified beds and borders that are full of colour from early season to late autumn. It is a wonderfully peaceful place to sit and dream amongst the borders/beds set with herbaceous perennials, shrubs and grasses, and collections of Crocosmia, Agapanthus and Dahlias. There is a pond area with wildlife and bog planting, and a shady Fernery, also Japanese and Mediterranean areas and Iris Bed. You can make your own refreshments in the Tea Hut and sample the homemade cakes, also buy plants at the plant nursery. Dogs on leads welcome. Open March to October (except Tues and Weds) from 10 to 6. Entry is just £3.50 with free entry (and Garden Quiz) for children and free access to the plant nursery/tea hut.

Self-catering accommodation is available.

Directions: From A390 between St Austell and Lostwithiel, turn onto the B3269 towards Fowey, then right after 200 yards following the signs for 2 miles.
