Cornwall Things to Do: 327 reviews and 669 photos
The gardens are on many levels as they descend the steep valley to the River Tamar. The climate is mild and there are many exotic and tender plants. There are ponds, old yew hedges (where would England be without them), a medieval dovecote, a daffodil meadow, terraced flower borders, fine trees and shrubs that provide colour throughout the year. The large estate has many footpaths. A short walk down through the gardens and along the river to the right leads to a quay which was busy in during in the 19th century.
Heading in the opposite direction leads you through the pond and out to the meadow where the Prospect Tower sits, isolated at the top of the hill.
