From Benallack you can visit lots of gardens in a close radius. Many of the big Cornish gardens which specialise in spring flowering trees and shrubs such as camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons are very nearby. We recommend the spring gardens of Trewithen , Heligan and Caerhays Castle. For a small, interesting garden with year-round colour go to Poppy Cottage Garden near Ruan High Lanes on the Roseland. The National Garden Scheme has a wide variety of private gardens open to the public on certain days. Ask us or refer to the NGS leaflet in your cottage.
