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.

About this garden

20 acre woodland garden created over last 200 years by the Carlyon family. Rich in exotic plants. At its floral peak in the spring. Formal walled garden and fine historic greenhouse range on flat ground near entrance.

This event is being run in conjunction with the members of Cornwall Hospice Care’s St Austell fundraising group.

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.
