Gorgeous place to visit, safe and fabulous for children. Can be a bit of a steep walk back up but it's definitely worth a visit

We visited the garden in October but there was still lots of interest. The layout beautiful and the walk through the gardens to the beach and village of Glendurgan on the Helford is worth the trouble

What a real gem this place is. Lovely walks through the gardens with loads to see. Easy walk to Duggan village and lovely peaceful cove. The views across the gardens are fantastic. Lovely cafe and all very well maintained. Well worth my National Trust membership!

Beautiful gardens, we loved the maze! You can access a little cove at the far end, where there are buckets, spades etc to borrow. Really lovely place.

Loved this place. A really lovely winding path takes you energetically through lush gardens to a beautiful hidden little cove on the sea. Then on the way back you can have a go trying to find the centre of the maze, which I loved and...More

Yes you can easily push a pram around as there are paths for wheelchairs without steps, there are benches all the way along the paths where you can stop and feed, some are well recessed for privacy.
