Back to Nature: Homes With Beautiful Gardens

From the pristinely manicured to the wild and wooded, Cornwall showcases a plethora of homes with beautiful gardens. With many of us falling back in love with our gardens and craving time in nature, we round up a handful of our Gems with beautiful gardens and extra-special outdoor space.  So with alfresco dining, hot tub dipping and wildflower sniffing in mind, lets explore some of Cornwall’s most beautiful gardens…


1. Little Cutmadoc Farm, Lanhydrock

A pocket of wonderland in the Lanhydrock estate. With it’s own private lake and ten acres of landscaped grounds, this recently transformed barn promises peace and serenity. Wildlife watch from the steaming hot tub, explore the magical grounds and soak up the views from the stunning holiday home.

2. Bodrigy, Cadgwith

Bright green grass meets azure waters at the cliff-top sanctuary in Cornwall. Filled with colour and scent in spring and summer, the vibrant lawn stretches to the cliff edge, where guests can take in the comings and goings of Cadgwith Cove. A cliff-top hot tub, boules court and breathtaking views all around are the highlights of this beautiful garden.

3. Mill Cottage, Mullion Cove

This cute-as-a-button cottage garden is the cherry on top of charming Mill Cottage. A sunny terrace leads out from the sun room and offers seating for all, whilst on the enclosed lower level sits a wildflower garden and thatched roof potting shed. However the wonderful location really is your extended outdoor space; walk to Mullion Cove in three minutes where swimming, ice cream and harbour life await.

4. Wren Cottage, nr Perranporth

Set within a beautiful pocket of flora and fauna, this cottage garden is a joy to explore. Dip toes into the gentle stream at the bottom of the garden, and lounge on the sun terrace as you plan your days adventure from this luxury home in Cornwall.


5. Hedlands, Charlestown

A haven of seaside bliss, Headlands’ terrace beckons lazy days with far reaching views of St Austell Bay as your backdrop. Holiday vibes are guaranteed when you plunge into the swimming pool and gather around the fire pit on summer evenings. 



6. Col Ros, Mullion

Cornish palms and glistening blue vistas set the holiday scene at Col Ros. A spacious stone terrace begs for al fresco dining. Whilst at the bottom of the rolling lawn, a private gate opens out onto the coastal path, ushering you to the sandy beach (less than a ten minute walk away!) This beautiful garden is flanked by a natural hedged boundary, creating a safe haven for children and their four-legged buddies to play.
