Which are the best Gardens to go to? Traebah or Glendurgan?

I’m a member of the NT so tend to visit Glendurgan more often.

If you like Italianate gardens catch the ferry from Falmouth to St Mawes and visit Lamorran

Or, if you drive round to the Roseland you could also visit St Just in Roseland’s beautiful churchyard set in waterside gardens.

Great cakes at Miss V’s cream teas across the road.

Both have nice path walks. They are both hilly because they are next to each other occupying the same incline. I think Glendurgan is slightly smaller. Both have unusual flowers of a sub tropical nature although that depends on the season. If you are visiting now you will see the camellias and rhododendrons in flower in both gardens. Trebah was used as an embarkation point for the US troops for the D-day landings.

I prefer Trebah but like BCC I am a NT member so visit Glendurgan more often.
