These unique 19th-century gardens are located near Mevagissey. You can spend quite a bit of time here exploring and walking the different garden designs. It also holds Europe’s only remaining pineapple pit, kept warm by manure, and two sculptures made from rocks and plants named the Mud Maid and the Giant’s Head.

Bonus for Poldark Fans

If you’re a fan of the TV series Poldark, then you know that much of the show is filmed on location in the Cornwall area. Fans of the show will want to stop by these locations, as they are well known in the series.

Gwennap Head near Land’s End is the iconic Poldark vista for looking out to the sea in so many scenes. Kynance Cove, which is mentioned above, is also a well-known beach in the series and definitely worth a stop.

You can venture into unique Charlestown, which was a perfect location to be used for Poldark’s Truro. The National Trust-owned mine of Levant gives you the old mining feel that you would have seen from the show.

There’s just something about the place that gives you that rustic feeling with everything you need. Tending to fires to heat the jacuzzi whilst toasting marshmallows, perfection.
