Visit to Trebartha

This is a great opportunity to see a really fine historic garden.  Trebartha lies in the valley of the River Lyner and is one of the oldest settled areas in Cornwall.  The Trebartha Estate was purchased by the Latham family in 1940 from Major Stanhope Rodd.  Trebartha Hall has been demolished, but the wonderful historic gardens are undergoing restoration with views to Hawks Tor on Bodmin Moor.  There are many fine trees and bluebells in the woodland walks, including a large swan pool, American Gardens, cascades, and walled garden.  The refreshments will be tea coffee, biscuits – £2 per person.  Some paths are steep and may be slippery, so stout footwear is advised.  

Directions: Trebartha Hall is SW of Launceston (postcode PL15 7PD).  From the A30 turn right onto the B3257 signposted Callington (be careful here as you need to move to fast lane soon after the Petrol station which may be closed). After about 2 miles, turn right onto the B3254, and then first right again. On this road, do not turn left to North Hill and continue to the next cross roads where immediately straight-on is the drive to Trebartha Hall. 

Please arrive for a 6.30pm start.
