Starting in a complex of former farm buildings and garden walls, explore this elevated garden with its views of deep wooded valleys and flashes of blue water.

Trelissick sits on its own peninsula in an unspoiled stretch of the Fal River. Picturesque planting is heightened by the folding contours and the informal wooded setting.
