Overview
More
Antony Woodland Garden is one of Cornwall's best kept secrets, with 100 acres of gardens running along the edge of the Lynher Estuary. The garden is home to one of the UK's best collection of camellias and is recognised as An International Camellia Garden of Excellence as well as housing the National Collection of Camellia Japonica. Camellias aside the garden has the most beautiful collection of magnolias, carpets of wild flowers, stunning views across the river and back towards Antony House, a collection of contemporary sculpture. It is the perfect place to spend a couple of quiet hours surrounded by unparalleled beauty.

The at one with nature is recommended to blow away all cares and woes. Children love the freedom and open spaces. Beautiful surroundings.

Forget visiting the house, this is the real gem. In April with the camelias and rhododendrons in bloom and a carpet of bluebells in every clearing this is a very pleasant place to spend an afternoon. The views across the estuary from the hillside are...More

I have previously visited in Spring and summer so it was a pleasure to come back now Autumn is taking hold but it's a shame the Woodland Gardens and Antony are now closed until next Spring. The Green walk is just right for little legs...More

This beautiful woodland garden is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Walking by the river or sat in the woodland. Well worth the admission fee.

This garden / walk is a gem. It forms the lower part of the Antony House grounds. There are well laid paths throughout the gardens and exquisite views across the Lynher, which is one of Cornwall's under-rated rivers. At Easter time there is an abundance...More

I'm afraid it is not National Trust, but we do have a relationship with them and the garden is free to National Trust members when the house is open.
