Explore the Exotic, peaceful tranquillity of Glendurgan Garden
Glendurgan is a valley garden of great beauty created in the 1820s and developed over many years by the Fox family. Running down to the tiny village of Durgan and its beach with fine views of the Helford River, it is predominantly a spring-time sub-tropical garden and has many fine trees and rare and exotic plants, with outstanding spring displays of magnolias and camellias. In their season glorious displays of wild flowers carpet the valley slopes. The cherry laurel maze, dating from 1833, puzzles young and old. An original cob and thatch schoolroom has been reconstructed.
