About Pinetum Gardens
Pinetum Gardens are "30 Acres of family friendly awesome!", a place for every generation to explore the great outdoors. Being Cornwall's largest "new" garden, it has many seasonal garden rooms to experience, providing areas of intimate tranquility contrasted against large open parkland vistas.
Take time to discover the whole estate and the many gardens of which it comprises. Play hide and seek in the arboretum, follow the â?Soul Birdâ trail, relax and reflect in the Japanese garden, take a deep breath in the open parkland and re-charge out of season in the spectacular winter garden.
Pinetum is a very special and inclusive space, set mostly on level ground with large areas put to lawn, perfect for a gentle stroll with the dog, an ideal environment for under fives to toddle around and perfect for families to share a moment away from traffic and the stresses of everyday life.
Lovingly created over the last four decades with over 6000 plants from around the globe, there is colour and interest throughout the year. Ideal for a plants person to while away hours and the novice gardener to take inspiration. Pinetum is also home to several Champion Trees, either the tallest or broadest of their variety; providing a sense a maturity and grandeur.
Set in a delightful courtyard on the edge of the garden, Pinetum Kitchen serves fresh, locally sourced breakfasts and light lunches utilising the finest seasonal ingredients between 10am and 3pm.
