Boconnoc Gardens: Boconnoc, Lostwithiel, Cornwall, PL22 0RG
Owner: Elizabeth Fortescue
Date & Time: Saturday 15th May 2pm to 5pm
From the centuries-old trees of the ancient woodland to the extraordinary 18th Century Bath House, exploring the grounds at Boconnoc feels like stepping right into a timeless oil painting.
Begin your tour at the Dorothy Garden, just a quick stroll from the house, where fountains burble and flowers turn their faces to the sun. Bring along a camera to capture the vibrancy of the shrubbery, which bursts into blossom, from 34 different varieties of hydrangeas to pink and purple rhododendrons and azaleas. And for a special escape, explore the palm-fringed paradise of the Tropical Fountain along the Stewardry Walk. Around a waterfall, pool, and Lady Hamilton’s marble bath, the exotic plants create an ambiance that’s akin to a tropical retreat.
