Tregrehan Garden // St Austell

Dramatic 20ha woodland garden created over the last 200 years by the Carlyon family, forming an exotic green gene bank of known source plants in a temperate rainforest

Dramatic 20ha woodland garden created over the last 200 years by the Carlyon family, forming an exotic green gene bank of known source plants in a temperate rainforest. Within tower some two dozen trees recorded as the biggest of their type in the country. Veteran trees in the 100ha parkland date from the first half of the 17th Century. An extensive 128 ft Victorian greenhouse built in 1844 shelters a fine plant range in the more formal walled garden area.
