Tea and scones in Tregothnan Gardens

We’ve just been chatting to the Tregothnan people, a wonderful garden and estate in Truro, West England. They have private garden tours in December together with a Tregothnan cream tea in the 19th century summerhouse – complete with a range of Tregothnan teas, freshly baked scones, Rodda’s clotted cream and our unique Kea plum jam!

The Tregothnan Estate near Truro, home to the same family since 1335, has the largest historic garden in Cornwall. Translated from Cornish it means ‘The House at the Head of the Valley’ and at the beating heart of the Estate is the Private Botanic Garden.

Although the garden is not open to the public you may, with prior appointment, visit this amazing Garden. Neil Bennett (the Head Gardener) or one of the garden team acts as your guide, discussing the fascinating history of the garden, its impressive plant collections and exciting plans for the future.

Sounds like something we need to check out!
