Spring Garden Breaks

Due to its sub-tropical climate Cornwall has some of the best and most famous gardens in the world


Cornwall has a mild sub-tropical climate due to its geographical location on the edge of the Gulf Stream. The great plant hunters of the previous centuries realised this significant factor and as a result Cornish gardens are today considered some of the most famous in the world. The Nare, being on the south coast, is conveniently located for many of these beautiful gardens and four day Spring Garden Breaks are designed to allow one to experience these gardens at their most magnificent time of the year.

February and March are the best time to see amazing displays of stunning Magnolias, some of which have flowers as large as dinner plates, originally from the Himalayas. The bright colours of the Camellia flowers add to the wonderful pink displays during these early months of spring. Follow Cornwall Spring Story - the moment Cornish Magnolias flower spring has arrived in England - occurring in Cornwall before the rest of Britain. April and May brings spring bulbs, Rhododendrons and Azaleas, whilst June and July sees spectacular displays of Hydrangeas, Agapanthus and summer planting.
