Trebah Gardens, Cornwall
Trebah gardens is sub-tropical 26 acre garden located on the Helford River near the town of Falmouth.
Glendurgan Vs Trebah
Glendurgan gardens. is located almost next to Trebah gardens. Glendurgan is owned by the National Trust whereas, Trebah is privately owned. They both have sub-tropical plants with pathways that ultimately wind down to the Helford River.
If you’re in the Falmouth area why not visit both, Glendurgan offers a maze that has been there for 180 years! Whereas, if you have a four legged friend Trebah is dog friendly all year round.
I would recommend though that if you are on a budget and a National Trust member then visit Glendurgan. However, if you are a Falmouth or Exeter University student you can visit Trebah for only £2 and return again for free in 7 days!
The gardens at Trebah offer many facilities including a kitchen where you can eat fresh, sustainable and ethical food. A shop which sells artisan and hand crafted goods and plants. Wedding and venue hire of course the amazing garden that it is known for. With Tebah there is a bridge over a water lily pond (pictured above.)Which greatly reminds me of Monet’s Water Lily painting, you must check it out for yourself!
Overall for me, the gardens are both rather similar as their locations are identical but, if you are a garden fanatic I’m sure you will appreciate the differences between the two.
