Relax in Trelissick Gardens

Truro, Cornwall

Okay, so you’ve strolled along the beach and had a couple of surf lessons, what else is there to do in Cornwall?

Grab the picnic hamper, pack the papers and head to Trelissick Gardens – where you can spend the afternoon stretched out on the lawn, flicking through the colour supps.

These peaceful gardens are perched on the edge of the Fal Estuary – which winds its way through the gorgeous Cornish countryside from Truro all the way out to the English Channel. Aside from watching boats putter up and down the water, the estate has one or two green surprises up its sleeve.

For starters there are palms, maples and eucalyptus trees scattered around the 375 acres (not exactly what you’d expect to find in the English countryside), along with woodland walks and four summerhouses tucked away among the trees.

Once you’ve finished, simply jump on the King Harry chain ferry (one of the last ones in the country) just a few steps away, for the short and scenic trip across the estuary. Watch out for dolphins on your way over.
