Things to do at the Pinetum Gardens review

Pinetum Gardens is home to around 6,000 species of plants spread across 30 acres of themed gardens in Holmbush, near Saint Austell, Cornwall.

It is a place of tranquillity and peace with some wonderful scenery. It has been lovingly created over the past 40 years and is now one of the largest plant collections in the county. Themed gardens include a Japanese garden, an arboretum, a pretty Cornish cottage garden and a courtyard garden. Plus a bridge garden, sunken garden, winter and water gardens.

The gardens also have open parkland by a lake and a woodland walk. Why not take some duck friendly food with you and feed them by the lake? The gardens often host annual events many of which are great for families.

Please note – Most places may still require you to pre-book online in advance. Some venues also still have certain areas closed for safety reasons. Please check their website and/or social media pages before visiting.
