Carminowe Valley Garden

Carminowe Valley Garden is nestled on the side of Carminowe Valley in deep oak woodland Marion & Peter Stanley have created a diverse garden out of a mown arboretum since 2007.

The Carminowe River dissects the 3½ acre site as it tumbles over weirs and under bridges. A natural woodland walk can be taken through hazel, holly, oak and ash. A large pond, fern hollow and rhododendron walk leads through part of the wooded area which opens onto the rest of the cultivated garden.

  2. At the roundabout signed “right to Penzance” continue straight on
  3. Take the A3083 Lizard road for 1.1 miles
  4. Turn right, immediately behind central bollards just before the bridge which spans the main road (Do not go under the bridge, you will have missed the turn)
