Build Your Own Private Day Tour from my Selection of the Best Houses and Gardens in Cornwall


From the Late Victorian Splendour of Lanhydrock House to the Sub Tropical Lost Gardens of Heligan, I will build your tour around your preferences. Choose from the following:
*Lanhydrock
A magnificent late Victorian country house with glorious gardens and woodland.
*Prideaux Place
Built in 1592 this charming Elizabethan Manor House is still the family home of the same family that had it built, the Prideaux-Brunes.
*Trerice
A small Elizabethan Manor House with a very special original 16th century glass in the Great Hall window and impressive barrel ceiling in the Great Chamber.
*The Lost Gardens of Heligan
These romantic and mysterious gardens were completely overgrown until the early 1990s when a group of dedicated gardeners rediscovered the hidden treasures of this incredible sub-tropical location.
*The Eden Project
Dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World by some, the Eden Project is a very impressive, educational collection of plants. Explore the rainforest and Mediterranean biomes.
