Cornwall Gardens and Recommended Garden Hotels eBook

Only 12 days until the winter solstice: its time to be thinking about next year’s garden tours!

While planning a Cornwall garden tour, we produced an eBook on the subject. It is available for free download from our Gardens in Cornwall page. If any readers have further suggestions on where to go and which hotels have good gardens, please add a comment below! We would be pleased to include the information in a revised edition of the Cornwall Gardens eBook.

The eBook has information on eight top Cornwall Gardens – and also John Claudius London’s notes on his 1842 Cornwall Garden Tour. He was very ill and only spent a few days in the Duchy but his remarks are of considerable historic interest. Loudon was the most prolific garden writer who ever lived and perhaps the only polymath to take on the subject.

    I would like to see the Minack Theatre be included in the list. It is ‘garden as a stage’ in the real sense: built into the rugged Cornish coastline with the Atlantic ocean providing the dramatic backdrop, the amphitheatre has many garden elements including lawn seating, garden figures molded into the seating and the whole space is punctunated by areas of pocket planting.

    It’s creator has found the place’s genius locii and further amplified it to great effect.
