An abundance of wildlife in Peakswater

High summer, and our Open Gardens scheme continues to attract crowds of local people and visitors, with a beautiful garden set in a quiet valley with countryside views the next to open.
An abundance of wildlife in Peakswater

Higher Trenedden at Peakswater, near Pelynt, opens for the Trust on Sunday 24th July from 2.00pm to 5.00pm, and there is plenty to explore. The owners are particularly keen on attracting wildlife to their garden which offers lots of ideas has to how visitors can do so in their own.

The garden includes an established cottage garden, an arboretum which was planted in 2006, with specimen trees, a meadow with a large pond, and a boardwalk through marshland with an abundance of wildflowers and wildlife.

Suitable for families, although due to the nature of the garden disabled access is limited, and sorry, due to the wildlife – no dogs at this event. Admission is £4 per adult, with under 16s free. Pasties and cream teas by Crantocks Bakery and Roddas will be available.

Chris Betty, Communications Officer for the Trust, says,

“This is a garden where the owners are really keen to provide a haven for wildlife. So if you want any ideas as to how you can do the same, then you really should pay Higher Trenedden a visit.”

This is the sixth year running that the Trust has run their highly successful Open Gardens scheme, which is ssponsored by stayincornwall.co.uk

Pasties and cream teas will be available courtesy of Open Gardens supporters Crantock Bakery and Roddas.
