Trebah Garden

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 embarked for 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. We can be sure that John Claudius Loudon would have appreciated the design as an example of the Gardenesque style of planting design he had recently put forward. The garden around the house at the top of the ravine is planted with Mediterranean plants.
