Pinetum Gardens

Pinetum Gardens is a place of tranquillity, peace and spectacular garden scenery. The largest ’new’ garden created in Cornwall, family owned, we offer an intimate experience with a personal touch rarely found in our busy world.

Lovingly created over the past four decades, our idyllic 30-acre gardens are home to one of the largest plant collections in the county spread over ten individually themed garden rooms within a breath-taking landscape. We are also home to some of the county’s most spectacular trees. We’re as much a delight for gardeners as we are a wonderful retreat for walkers, and a place for families to explore and have fun with nature.

This 30-acre estate comprises of several gardens within the one, forming the back-drop to a stunning range of over 6000 types of plants, most of which are labelled. Wandering through the original part of the garden large trunks and branches shrubs give a feel of maturity and discovery as you happen across various object d’art.

In stark contrast you eventually break through to open park land, lake and mature oaks reminiscent of Capability Brown’s English landscape style. Then behind you lies the Japanese garden complete with authentic tea pavilion. The Gardens are home to several Champion Trees. A Champion Tree has to have been officially measured by the Tree Register and is declared a champion for either being the tallest of their type or for having the largest diameter.
