Cornwall and Early Spring Gardens

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am a garden tourer and musical lover and find myself with purchased air flight and Sweeney Todd tickets (Michael Ball!) for this coming week. My plan is to be in London for one or two nights starting March 28th, and then I'll be renting a car and heading west to Cornwall to see what gardens I can see; flight back is April 2nd. I have done similar trips to the Cotswolds and Kent in the past -- I love to wander about, and don't mind traveling solo. This time of year may not be the traditional garden-touring time, but trees and spring bulbs excite me just as much as perennial displays, in fact, the trees/shrubs/garden design/backbones are more important than flashy color!

Anyone who knows Cornwall have recommendations for me? Gardens (mature trees and/or spring bulbs) that are must-sees? Also, any reasonably priced places to stay? It might be nice to find a central location where I can stay for more than one night convenient to a number of the gardens.

Thank you!
