The newly opened garden of a grade II listed Georgian house near Constantine has had a successful first week.

Bosvathick House, the private residence of Stephen and Kate Tyrrell for 30 years, has offered private tours for some time, but this spring was the first time the public were able to view the gardens, which boast a lake, sunken garden, and a newly planted orchard.

The gardens are open every Thursday from April to August, with tours of the house by family members at 2.30pm.
