see wonderful Cornwall gardens when staying at our luxury hotel in the River Fowey

The Western Morning News and Trago Mills have announced their shortlist of the best gardens in the South West, and three from Cornwall made the list, one being close to our luxury hotel on the River Fowey.

Entries ranged from courtyard gardens, lovely hideaways, floral front gardens and more. The shortlist of ten gardens are to be narrowed down to the final three in the coming weeks.

Judge Paul Stone said: "It's a fine thing to celebrate great gardening in the South West and I've not been disappointed with the obvious love, achievement and ambition of this year's entries. My thanks and congratulations to every entrant and I wish you all the best and that your gardens continue to thrive."

The final winner of the Best Garden in the South West competition will receive £1,000 Trago Mills vouchers as well as a consultation with Paul, who is a garden and landscape designer based in Falmouth.

The three winning gardens in Cornwall are Sharon Armstrong's garden in St Austell who said her husband spends many hours working in the garden, and everyone who passes by makes an encouraging comment. Kay Price's said her garden in St Dominick has been 5 years' hard work, building it from scratch, and produces colour all year round. Tony and Kerry Marr's garden in Penzance is a paradise, covering nine-acres, and they are still increasing their gardening knowledge.

As well as small gardens like this, Cornwall has many large stunning gardens that are lovely to walk through during the summer months. We have a garden at The Cormorant Hotel, which is used to grow seasonal foods all year that are used in the meals served at our restaurant.
