By Arrangement gardens in Cornwall

If you’re looking to organise a private visit to a garden, whether it be for a local group or for friends and family, a By Arrangement can provide something a little different. In Cornwall there’s a range of gardens available for private By Arrangement visits, find out more below.

Trevilley, Penzance

Eccentric, romantic and constantly evolving garden, as befits the intense creativity of its owners, carved out of an expanse of concrete farmyard over 20 yrs. Inc elaborate network of decorative cobbling, pools, container garden, vegetable garden, shade garden, the largely subtropical mowhay garden and both owners’ studios but arguably its glory is the westernmost walled rose garden in England. Opens By Arrangement for June and July for groups of between 6 and 30.

Windmills, Callington

Next to medieval church and on the site of an old rectory there are still signs in places of that long gone building. A garden full of surprises, formal paths and steps lead up from the flower beds to extensive vegetable and soft fruit area. More paths lead to a pond, past a pergola, and down into large lawns with trees and shrubs and chickens. Opens By Arrangement from May to August for groups of between 10 and 30.
