Mawnan Smith near Falmouth TR11 5JZ
Wander under the lush canopies of this sub-tropical garden valley garden that tumbles down to an idyllic beach on the edge of the Helford River. Witness rare and exotic shrubs that flourish throughout the year, get lost in the cherry laurel maze and let the kids get dizzy on The Giant's Stride. Take a beach picnic or fuel up in the tearooms. Owned by the National Trust, there are excellent facilities including a café and gift shop.
