Bonython Estate Gardens

A 15 acre garden within a valley with 3 lakes and formal walled garden. Includes a camelia woodland, set in a disused quarry.


To reach Bonython Estate Gardens by road, you will first need to drive to Helston. From Truro, Falmouth or Penzance, take the A394 signposted to Helston. From Redruth, follow the B3297 signposted to Helston, and from Camborne, follow the B3303, again signposted to Helston.

On reaching Helston, pick up the A3083 towards The Lizard. After passing Culdrose Naval Air Station you will come to a roundabout – see first photograph below. Go straight on for The Lizard and stay on the A3083 for about another two miles, then turn left at The Wheel Inn public house at Cury Cross Lanes – see second photograph below.

Follow the narrow lane for about 400 yards, and take the second turn on your right which will be clearly signed for the Gardens (please do not take the first house entrance to “Bonython Manor”).

Take a right turn shortly after entering the drive for the entrance to the Garden Car Park.
