With its emphasis on wildlife gardening, Trenarth at High Cross, Constantine, is a timeless favourite with visitors to Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Open Gardens scheme - and it's open tomorrow.

This beautiful four-acre garden is set around a 17th century farmhouse in a lovely pastoral setting with extensive panoramic views.

Trenarth is gardened to invite wildlife. Its water and bog features and are beloved by birds, butterflies and insects and the garden is home to a maternity roost of lesser horseshoe bats.

The 16th century courtyard is stunning and the listed garden walls give a sense of privacy. The gravel and palm area is fantastic and there are many unusual plants that suit the Cornsih climate. The yew rooms are a treasure and the woodlands magical.

An ancient green lane walk leads to the wildlife pond, through what would be bluebell woods in the spring, to Trenarth Bridge and then back up through another woodland footpath.

Younger visitors have not been forgotten, with a quirky and child friendly garden and a children’s garden trail. They are sure to find the toilet in a telephone box amusing!

Trenarth will be open on Sunday August 5 from 2-5pm, with entrance £5 for adults and under 16s free.

It’s a beautiful haven to enjoy bees, butterflies and bats and there are cream teas, too. The perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
