Pencarrow House & Gardens   |   Caerhays Castle & Gardens   |   Lanhydrock House & Gardens   |   Lost Gardens of Heligan   |   Padstow

 

DAY ONE - Arrival

We begin our tour with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel south with comfort stops en route.  Arrive at our hotel late afternoon, time to settle in before dinner.

 

DAY TWO – Pencarrow & Padstow

This morning we visit Pencarrow and its beautiful gardens, the impressive, extensive gardens are a joy to explore.  The floral season starts in March with a dazzling display of camellias and rhododendrons (more than 400 varieties in total) which bloom throughout Spring, you can also see the Iron Age Hill Fort and sunken Italian Garden with a quatrefoil fountain.  Later we make our way to Padstow, where you will have free time for you to enjoy perhaps a nice lunch, it is possibly the best place for fish and chips in Cornwall!!  After lunch we take the coast road to the magnificent coastline at the Bedruthan Steps for a photo opportunity before returning to our hotel.

 

DAY THREE – Lanhydrock House & Gardens

Today we will visit Lanhydrock House, an impressive late Victorian home and gardens.  After a fire in 1881, the owner Thomas Charles filled Lanhydrock with the latest technology, including state of the art ovens and warming cupboard in the kitchen and dining areas, central heating systems and fire hydrants, all of which we take for granted today but very forward thinking back then.  You will also see the fascinating contrast between the upstairs and downstairs worlds by exploring the kitchens and servants’ quarters as well as the grand family spaces.

 

DAY FOUR – Lost Garden of Heligan & Caerhays Casle & Gardens

Our excursion today is to experience one of the most unique and fascinating attractions in Cornwall – The Lost Gardens of Heligan.  A genuine secret garden which was lost for decades which has an incredible 200 acres of gardens and estate to discover.  This afternoon we visit Caerhays Castle & Gardens, situated on a steep hillside its 140-acre gardens have an international reputation for camellias and rhododendrons and is home to one of Britain’s four National Magnolia Collections.
