The Cornwall Hospice Care Open Gardens Programme offers the opportunity to see many wonderful and often private gardens, opened specifically to raise money towards our care.

PLEASE NOTE: Kestle Barton Gallery and Garden is open EVERY WEDNESDAY from the 24th March to 3rd November, with donations coming to Cornwall Hospice Care.

About this garden

The garden is sheltered and south-facing in the old farmyard mowhay. James Alexander-Sinclair designed the garden, making a plantsman’s scheme of herbaceous plants and sweeps of tall grasses. Wild flower meadow and orchard.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.
