Elderly and Disabled

There is plenty of parking within a short walk of the garden entrance. The loos situated next to the car park are equipped with fold down bars and access is on level ground. The Walled Garden, Glasshouse Range and top half of the garden is all accessible to wheelchairs via graded pathways. Please ask if in doubt where the most user friendly routes are in the garden. 


Dogs are permitted to exercise in the parkland on a lead. When sheep are present please keep dogs well clear especially when lambing. Unfortunately dogs aren't allowed in the main garden but there are plenty of shaded areas in the car park  to leave pets while visiting.    

Health and Safety

Please keep children under observation at all times as due to the nature of a mainly woodland garden there are areas of water, uneven banks and some steep drops. All paths are regularly inspected and mown where appropriate. But stout footwear is still advisable especially if the weather has been unsettled. Very occasionally the garden will have to close due to extreme weather such as high winds. The garden was laid out well before modern regulations were invented; therefore we cannot eliminate all health and safety risks. Common sense with regard to handling plants and avoiding physical hazards is a joint responsibility between visitors and ourselves.


Tea, coffee, various other drinks and snack foods are available at the garden entrance. If there is no-one around when you arrive, please ring the bell by the entrance door and someone will appear to help with plant sales or refreshments.


The Garden entrance is signposted off the A390 1/2 mile west of St Blazey and 2 miles east of St Austell, on the north side of the road.

Please be aware that there is a formal Council highway road sign pointing towards Tregrehan just west of the garden entrance, this needs to be ignored. The entrance is well signposted nearly opposite the Britannia Inn on the A390 through granite gateposts.
