Charity Garden Open Weekend at Tregothnan- April 2020
Book yourself in to attend the UK’s largest charity garden opening in 2020!
Held at Tregothnan, the usually private gates to the largest, historic, botanic garden in Cornwall will be open for one weekend.
All the proceeds go to charity and our main charity this year is St. Petroc’s Society who work to provide accommodation, support, advice, training and resettlement services to single, homeless people in Cornwall.
Get lost in ancient Camellias, mountainous Magnolias and the biggest Rhododendrons in the world with 40 foot crescendos of full flower. The sheer scale of the garden, over 100 acres, means that there will be plenty of peace.
Also available will be Cornish cream teas with Tregothnan tea and Kea plum jam, Salcombe Dairy ice creams, estate-reared meat cooked on a barbecue over Tregothnan charcoal, and delicious homemade lunches. Musical entertainment are sure to keep visitors entertained throughout the weekend.
Children aged 16 and under go free, encouraging families to enjoy the adventure of Cornwall’s finest garden. Open from 10am – 5pm, with the last entry to the garden at 4pm. Dogs on leads welcome.
