Yesterday as Museum Day and in Oxford, we’re really spoilt with the amazing Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers museum. While we were in Cornwall last week, we didn’t visit any museums, but we did go to Trebah Gardens. It’s dog friendly, has lots to see and it has it’s own beach. Perfect.
It has such an amazing array of plants of all colours, shapes and sizes. We headed straight down to the beach upon arrival and enjoyed a salted caramel ice cream. Then we headed back up to the koi pond, via the water garden, which was incredibly tranquil. It was such a lovely place, we intended to go back, as the ticket is valid for 7 days. But alas, we ran out of time and didn’t make it. It’s definitely somewhere we’ll visit again next time we’re near. Poppy was welcome throughout the gardens and she loved it! There were so many smells for her that she was exhausted when we finished. Dogs have free entry and we even got a dog biscuit on arrival! So cute! The gardens were a real inspiration to me and I took way too many pictures. I love that the beach has such a history too, as it was used as an embarkation point for the D-Day landings. The boathouse that’s on the beach was also built by racing driver, Donald Healey.
Trebah Garden is now one of my favourite places to visit in Cornwall! How about you? What’s your favourite garden to visit?
