Tregothnan Charity Garden Opening
23 March 2017
Tregothnan will open its usually private gates to the largest, historic, botanic garden in Cornwall. Open for one weekend on the 22nd and 23rd April 2017, visitors can experience Tregothnan’s unequalled diversity of trees, rare collections, sweeping vistas and peaceful secluded groves on the banks of the beautiful river Fal.
All the proceeds go to charity and our main charity this year is St. Petroc’s Society who work to provide accommodation, support, advice, training and resettlement services to single, homeless people in Cornwall.
Get lost in ancient Camellias, mountainous Magnolias and the biggest Rhododendrons in the world with 40 foot crescendos of full flower. The sheer scale of the garden, over 100 acres, means that there will be plenty of peace.
Also available will be Cornish cream teas with Tregothnan tea and Kea plum jam, Salcombe Dairy ice creams, estate-reared meat cooked on a barbecue over Tregothnan charcoal, and delicious homemade lunches. Musical entertainment are sure to keep visitors entertained throughout the weekend.
Children aged 16 and under go free, encouraging families to enjoy the adventure of Cornwall’s finest garden. Open from 10am – 5pm, with the last entry to the garden at 4pm. Dogs on leads welcome.
Accommodation in Cornwall will be available but book early to get the best offers; There is limited availability at Wild Escapes. This promises to start the 2017 season in a memorable way while raising potentially record amounts for our worthy charity.
