30 acre woodland garden and attached nursery. Owned by the Caerhays estate from where many of the trees and shrubs came.
Burncoose Nurseries and Garden are situated at Gwennap, not far from Redruth. The estate was purchased in the early 18th century by the Williams family, famous for the development of the gardens at Caerhays Castle. At Burncoose, the developed of the gardens did not really begin until almost a century later. In fact, most of the garden took shape during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
