This is an intriguing historical garden in which the Gryll’s family built a mansion in the early 19th Century, but many secrets of its past have been lost along with its records that haven’t survived. Evidence suggests that the mature trees in the protected valley to the south of the house were most probably planted by the Gryll’s family, and the development of the earliest planting lay in the hands of Arthur Pendarves Vivian, a keen plantsman who took over the estate in 1885.
Described as ‘the most Cornish of all Cornish gardens’ in the Gardener magazine in 1909, this paradise valley may have grown into a more exotic patch since, and evidence of its distinct and striking Cornish roots make it still worthy of a celebrated reputation to this day.
Off Manaccan to St Anthony road; or uphill from Treath and first left.
