Located just west of Penzance, a large yet peaceful and intimate garden with a maze of paths to explore. Dramatic tree ferns (one group in a small open cast mine) now said to be the best collection in the northern hemisphere, magnolias, camellias, magnificent shrubs, ancient tin workings, water features and year-round interesting and unusual plants.

First designed and built in the late 19th century by Thomas Bedford Bolitho and is still owned by the Bolitho family.


Situated near Penzance in West Cornwall, Tremenheere can be found in a beautiful sheltered valley, overlooking St Michael’s Mount, with woods and a stream, interwoven with an evolving programme of contemporary artwork.

The creations of artists such as James Turrell, David Nash, Richard Long, Tim Shaw and Peter Randall-Page interact with the setting to create site-specific permanent work, which harmonises with the landscape.

Within this breath-taking location, Tremenheere hosts its sculpture garden, gallery, shop, nursery and restaurant.
