Pencarrow, Bodmin, PL30 3AG

Pencarrow gardens, laid out in the early 1800’s by William Molesworth, boast significant historic features, including the Italian Garden, the Rockery, the wonderful One mile long Carriage Drive lined by conifers & shrubs, the Rounds – an ancient British encampment, a walled kitchen garden and an ice house.

The gardens range from formal landscapes to ancient woodlands, with spectacular displays of bluebells and wild garlic in May and June (which we may see the beginnings of) and hundreds of varieties of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. 

Our tour will be led by head gardener Gavin Vague.

Cost: £5.50 pp to include light refreshment on arrival and a post tour cream tea.

No dogs.  Parking for 25 cars.
