Place, Fowey

Event Details

  • Date:

Place has the most spectacular setting with views down over the estuary.  There is a walled garden with crinkle crankle walls, the old carriageway linked by a series of steps to a higher walkway, the remains of an Edwardian garden with a pergola and a rock garden. The gardens beyond the immediate vicinity of the house are believed to have been designed by Thomas Mawson and some of those plans were used when the gardens were created out of the surrounding fields. The Rose Garden (just starting to be rescued) was designed by Madeline Agar and a drawing of it is included in her book ‘Garden Design in Theory and Practice’ 1912. We are very privileged to be able to have a tour of this wonderful garden, with the owners, Sarah and Jonathon Treffry.

Cost: £5.00 pp to include afternoon tea. No dogs.  Parking is limited so car share where possible.
