CORNISH GARDENS

Cruise effortlessly along the quiet county lanes from Gwithian to the first of the Great Gardens of Cornwall on this medium graded bike trail.

Dating back to the 16th century Trengwainton garden is noted for its collection of exotic trees and shrubs along with spectacular views across Mounts Bay. Next on the route is Trewidden, a short 3 miles from Trengwaiton. Opened in 1853 Trewidden Garden is uniquely spread over a 15-acre estate with a selection of exotic plants found nowhere else in the UK. The gardens have on site cafés providing homemade artisan coffee, cakes and lunches.

Both charge a small entrance fee and have a large secure area to lock up the eBikes whilst you explore the quiet paths around the gardens.
