Welcome to Glendurgan Garden, a hidden gem tucked away on the beautiful south coast of Cornwall. This stunning property is a must-visit destination for anyone looking to explore the natural beauty of the region, with its combination of lush tropical plants, winding paths, and breathtaking views of the Helford River.

Located near the village of Mawnan Smith, Glendurgan Garden is set within 26 acres of beautiful woodland and gardens, and is a tranquil and peaceful oasis that's perfect for a relaxing day out. The property dates back to the 1820s, when it was purchased by the Fox family, who were wealthy Quakers and philanthropists.

One of the highlights of any visit to Glendurgan Garden is the chance to explore the property's stunning gardens, which are home to a wide variety of rare and exotic plants from around the world. From the towering rhododendrons and azaleas to the exotic tree ferns and palms, there's something to see and discover around every corner.

In addition to the gardens, visitors to Glendurgan can also explore the property's charming and historic features, including the iconic cherry laurel maze, which is a firm favourite with children and adults alike. There's also a delightful 19th-century boathouse that offers stunning views of the river, and a tea room where visitors can relax and enjoy a hot drink and a slice of cake.
