Glendurgan Garden

Stroll down through the peaceful, exotic and playful valley to a sheltered beach at the bottom.  There are three valleys of Glendurgan to lose yourself in – full of fun, informality, natural beauty and amazing plants.  Big leaves and exotic flowers thrive in the jungle-like lower valley and sun-loving specimens enjoy the upper banks.  In spring thousands of wildflowers carpet the sloping sides of this steep valley.

Wandering through the garden leads down to the unspoilt hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River: a place to watch birds and boats, skim stones and build sand-castles.  Walking back up from Durgan you can find a boat-seat, a gigantic tulip-tree and ponds teeming with wildlife.  You can also learn about the Fox family who created this ‘small peace of heaven on earth.’

The maze has been foxing people for over 180 years.  Who will be first to reach the middle of our living puzzle?
