Cornish gardens are therefore considered to be amongst some of the finest in the world. Many beautiful Cornish gardens are within a short drive from the hotel. Concessionary tickets can be purchased at the hotel and private guided tours with head gardeners can be arranged for guests.
The Nare is positioned on the South West Coast Path with direct access from the hotel's gardens. One can choose to walk independently or book a private guided walk on any stretch of the Cornish coast path.
