‘A real paradise’ Alastair said after his visit. This is a stunning estate on the edge of St Austell with one of the finest gardens in the south west. Jo and Tom (his family have lived and planted here since 1565) are avid horticulturists and run the whole place with verve. The history is breathtaking: 400-year-old grand oaks and sweet chestnuts, a lovely walled garden, yew walk, huge greenhouse, a fabulous collection of hybrid camellias grown in the 1960s and more recently Tom has added a lake and reclaimed the woodland garden. The magnolias are spectacular in spring, the bluebells dreamy in May and a Sitka spruce, the tallest tree in Cornwall, stands 46 metres tall! Lucky guests get to share this spectacular setting. The five converted stable cottages, sleeping two to eight, will suit laid-back couples and unfussy families. Set around a cobbled courtyard and built from local stone, inside there are no surprises in the comfortingly traditional décor. Each has a private garden, beams galore, free logs for the wood-burners, simple kitchens, basic bedrooms, dated bathrooms. Enjoy the serenity, or head out to the best of Cornwall.

Thank you, Jo and David, for looking after us so well again, including the log burner going strong, which is a wonderful welcome when we arrive! We have had another great holiday - we absolutely love coming here in the Autumn and Winter, it's such a lovely place to stay and Cornwall is just as beautiful at this time of the year! We both feel so at home here and cannot wait to return!! With love, Annie & Cliff xx

A charming and very comfortable cottage in a magnificent park in a quiet area. Perfectly located to explore Cornwall. We were very warmly welcomed by Jo, the owner.

Easy to find and a short drive to local stores, old coach house had its own enclosed courtyard/garden for the BBQ etc.. 20minute walk to eden project, Gardens were superb and liked the greenhouses. Jo and Tom and the rest of the team many thanks and will return if in the area again.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jo & Tom Hudson

  • Cornwall’s extraordinary garden culture from mid-Feb - the unparalleled highlight for me is Magnolia cambellii in flower when the season is kind. Particularly good through spring are Tregrehan, NT Lanhydrock (15 mins E) & Caerhay’s (25 mins W) gardens
  • In May a colourful Mevagissey Feast Week follows Fowey’s Festival of Words and Music. Tregrehan Garden holds a Rare Plant Fair hosting over a dozen specialist growers. Flowering are the Handkerchief tree, kowhai, styrax, sorbus, bluebells …
  • Walk to the Eden Project for an horticulture course or to study botanical illustration or business development. Look up at the magnificent trees at Tregrehan Garden, Redwoods, Cedars, Firs, Oaks and Spruce, towering to record heights
  • Get your boots on ... autumnal walks along the coast, into the intriguing Luxulyan Woods or over Red Moor and Bodmin Moor. Ice-skating at Eden. End the day in front of the fireplace at the welcoming Rashleigh Inn on Polkerris Beach (under 15 mins drive)
  • Out of season take the train to St Ives to see the artists’ light, Cornish architecture, enjoy the Tate Gallery with lunch on the beach in the Porthminster café. Cycle to Padstow and admire the winter hues on the sands and headlands. Lunch at the Duchy
  • Enjoy the cheer of the December Christmas Markets in Fowey & Truro and Truro’s phantastical tissue lantern parade. The Padstow Christmas Market celebrates the leaders in UK gastronomy with 40 chefs & 110 producers set around Padstow Harbour
