A romantic garden leading down to the beach at Durgan, with tantalising glimpses of the Helford River. Glendurgan is a feast of colour in spring from the many flowering shrubs, and wild flowers growing in profusion on the banks in early summer. To entertain children and families there is the challenge of the maze, fly high on the Giants Stride and the Victorian School Room provides a place to sit and enjoy the views. After all this exertion why not relax over a cup of tea and a snack in the teahouse. The shop and plant sales provide that perfect momentum of this 'Little bit of Heaven on Earth'.

The area also provides a base for magnificent walks on National Trust land. The Trust also has a host of holiday cottages available, details on +44 (0)870 458 4422.
