Cornwall || Summer days at Trebah Gardens

Summer has finally arrived down here in Cornwall, and we are trying to spend as much outside as and when we can... work and weather permitting!!

We are incredibly lucky to have some amazing spots to go and visit within such a close distance from where we live. Last weekend when the sun decided to take a visit, we thought we would take full advantage. We went for breakfast in one of our favourite spots 'Slice of Cornwall' in Wendron. We managed to grab ourselves a seat outdoors on the terrace and we both ordered some eggs benedict to eat in the sunshine. This cafe has one of the most incredible views and it is such a little sanctuary. After stuffing our faces, we decided to go and visit a local private garden called Trebah Gardens and we were not disappointed.

The gardens is still owned by the family (who still live there), and although the house is closed to the public, they have opened the gardens for all to wander. The gardens are set in a valley and the whole setting is incredible and the smells of all the flowers are so beautiful too. We took a slow wander through the gardens passing Rhododendron valleys and gigantic Gunnera plants and ended up at the privately owned beach. It was an incredibly hot day, so we could resist a dip in the sea. Although slightly chilly, it was very much needed to cool down before wandering back up the valley.
