Just down the road from Trebah is the National Trust garden, Glendurgan.
With rich and varied plant life with everything from a ‘jungle’ to banks of wildflowers, the valley of Glendurgan leads down to the picture perfect hamlet of Durgan and a beach right on the Helford River.
A great day out for families with lots to do – there is a hedge maze, the giants stride swing and plenty of space for games of hide-and-seek, sandcastle building or stone skimming. Here's our four top recommendations:
Lose yourself in the three valleys of Glendurgan Garden - full of fun, natural beauty and amazing plants
Discover giant rhubarb plants in the jungle-like lower valley and spiky arid plants basking in the sunny upper slopes
Find a boat-seat, gigantic tulip-trees and ponds teeming with wildlife
And don’t forget to stop for a famous National Trust cream tea!
