Cornwall’s largest private botanical gardens
Everything we do here at Tregothnan brings us back to the magnificent botanical garden. It provides us with produce and inspiration; our range of English estate teas and herbal infusions are grown here, our Manuka and wildflower honeys are produced here, our seasonal British flowers and foliages are sourced here. The gardens, both in Cornwall and in Kent, are the beating heart of the estate and we are constantly inspired by their fecundity and resilience.
The botanical gardens in Cornwall were first described back in 1695 by intrepid traveller, Celia Fiennes, in her book ‘Through England on a Side-Saddle’ when visiting Hugh Boscawen, her kinsman by marriage.
