Pedn Billy opens in spring with all that means to Cornwall, with bluebells, camellias, and other plants flowering well before the rest of the country. This is one of the county’s most beautiful and unique gardens, with wildflower areas, beautiful specimen trees, and terraced borders. Half of the twelve acres are ancient woodlands with paths that wind down to Port Navas Creek and the Helford River to a private beach, which is one of its main attractions.
The garden in Bar Road, Helford Passage, will be open from 2.00pm to 5.00pm. Admission is £5 per adult, with under 16s free. Tea will be taken on the terrace, and pasties, cream teas, and beverages will be provided by CrantocksBakery, Roddas and Cornish Coffee. Dogs are allowed on leads.
This is the eighth year running that the Trust has held their highly successful Open Gardens scheme which raises funds towards the protection of Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places.
