Cornwall Wildlife Trust have launched their Open Garden Days
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
Last month, the Cornwall Wildlife Trust launched their sixth series of Open Garden days across Cornwall, which will help raise money for the Trust. When staying at our boutique hotel in Cornwall this summer, why not enjoy some of the delightful gardens in the county?
All the gardens are much loved by their owners and the open days will be a chance for them to share their passion for gardening, nature and wildlife. This year some gardens will be open for the first time, others are opening at different seasons, so visitors can enjoy all the various flowers and plants all year round.
Across the next few months of summer and into early autumn, you can discover gardens close to our boutique hotel in Cornwall, where you can see and smell the beautiful flowers in bloom.
The garden at Lethytep, Lanreath, open on Sunday 26 June, is a haven for butterflies and dragonflies, due to the wild flower meadows, lakes and ponds. There is plenty to see for any keen gardener or naturalist.
On Sunday 24 July, Higher Trenedden garden at Pelynt will open its four acres to the public. There is a lot to explore; meadows and ponds, a boardwalk through marshlands, a cottage garden with arboretum featuring specimen trees and there is an abundance of wildflowers and wildlife to spot.
Into August, the May Tree Garden at St Austell will be open on 21 August. Small and intimate, you can explore the vegetable gardens, the pond and see a collections of fascinating plant species. If you fancy a rest, there are lots of seating areas and gazebos to relax under.
