One of Cornwall's most splendid woodland gardens. The nineteenth century house, painted white, looks onto a sub-tropical woodland garden in a ravine. There is a transition to a private beach from which the 29th US Infantry sailed to Normandy in 1944. The garden was planted by Charles Fox in 1831 and has been compared to a Himalayan valley - a description which it deserves more than any other place in England. The garden around the house at the top of the ravine is planted with Mediterranean plants.
