Actually, these gardens were lost - overgrown with brambles and ivy as most of the workforce went off to the trenches of WWI - many sadly never to return.
The gardens were rediscovered in 1990, when an intrepid team led by Tim Smit set about uncovering this lost gem.
After many years of hard work, the gardens were made into a thing of beauty once again, and were opened to the public, so, while in Cornwall we took the opportunity to visit:
They have vegetable gardens - many pumpkins seen here.
Nice landscaped areas.
Farmyard animals abound - chickens...
And that well known farmyard bird, the Emu!
The Grey Lady
And the Giant's Head.
We had a lovely day there - more info on their website.
