Brilliant little garden just of the road with loads of character. The gardens are a real labour of love for the owners. We were fascinated by all the little paths, hidden art works, and circle of stones. We also had a coffee and a slice of home-made cake, which were delicious. The only problem we had was that the paths... More

We visited here last year and we had the most delicious home made cake. The owner is so friendly and it's like a little haven hidden away

A little out of the way and not helped by the road works on the A30 however when you get there you will be surprised by how peaceful the garden is. We walked around three times and noticed different plants each time. Garden has been developed over the last 30 years by the current owners and included many quirky ornaments.... More

My daughter and I visited with our dog Ozzy and were the only visitors in the garden - a treat for anyone on a visit to Cornwall at bank holiday! We were welcomed by the owners and the map gave us a history of its owners and growth. This is a different garden as it is a labour of love... More

I'd strongly recommend visiting this garden and the nursery. The garden is individual. The area around the cottage is planted with light airy plants, which in August were largely pink and yellow in colour scheme, enhanced by airy grasses and the purple splashes of Verbena Bonariensis. There are also shady areas, planted with japanese maples, etc. The whole garden has... More

We visited the Pinsla Garden & Nursery while on holiday in Cornwall. The garden is surrounded by tranquil woodland and is an ideal place to chill out. There are cobbled pathways which wind in and out of the shrubbery, with something different to see at every turn. While walking around the garden, we saw some beautiful flowers and plants, some...

Today was a lovely sunny May Sunday - for a change. We live five minutes from Pinsla Gardens and have been meaning to go there for several months since we moved in. We chose a good day to go, it was a soft, warm gentle afternoon and the first thing that we noticed was the smell from some of the... More

Not one of you modern flashy garden centres where they sell everything including the kitchen sink. A down to earth plantsman's nursery with a wide range of plants. We bought a number to take back home and I would have bought but for lack of space in the car. Lovely mushroom soup in the tea room. All in all a... More

Loved our trip to Pinsla, somewhere we have visited many times. September is a really beautiful time to visit this magical garden and we particularly enjoyed this naturalistic style of gardening.

This garden, which the owners have gradually sorted out over a quarter of a century is not quite what most garden visitors would expect. My visit was not at the best time of year and indeed the place closes for the winter period at the end of October. However, I did find a number of areas that commanded my attention.... More
