Spring Garden Opening – 16 May


<< Back to all events

May is one of the best times of year for Cornish gardens. Be sure to make Scorrier House one of those you visit during this magnificent time of year.

The gardens at Scorrier House are among the county’s oldest but are not normally open to the public, so make the most of this opportunity!

Bluebells were late to the party in April, but should be a blaze of blue by this May weekend (the garden is open Saturday 15 May as well).

Plants from around the world were collected by the famous Victorian botanist William Lobb, who was employed by the family. As a result, there are many wild and exotic species on display. Read more about the history here.

Refreshments – teas, coffees and cakes – will be available and there are loos on site. Tickets must be purchased ahead of arrival (see below).

The garden is wheelchair accessible, though please note some paths are grass or loose gravel, so the going might not be entirely easy.

Dogs are welcome but only on leads please.
