Antony Woodland GardenTorpoint, Cornwall
Antony Woodland Garden is one of the most beautiful, and least known about, gardens in Cornwall. Just a ferry ride away from Plymouth it is a haven of serenity and peace, and the perfect place for a pleasant walk, a picnic, for children to explore and also for plantsmen (and women) to enjoy the magnificent variety of plants. The garden is home to over six hundred different varieties of camellias all growing in an idyllic setting. They range from the graceful species Camellia tsaii to varieties of Camellia sasanqua, saluenensis, williamsii, reticulata and japonica. It is an “International Camellia Garden of Excellence”, one of only four in this country, and holds the National Collection of Camellia japonica.
There is also a wonderful collection of nearly two hundred and fifty different types of magnolias and a good many other ornamental woody plants including hydrangeas and rhododendrons. During the spring the extensive glades and walks of the garden are covered with drifts of wild flowers; celandines, primroses, bluebells, campion and garlic, as well as some rarer plants that flourish in these conditions. Wild bird life also feeds on the rich mud flats of the Lynher River and throughout the year, oystercatchers, grey herons, egrets, cormorants and shelducks can be seen. Kingfishers at the Bath House pond, dart across the surface of the water whilst mullet swim beneath. Buzzards and kestrels are commonly seen hovering overhead.
100 acre Antony Woodland Garden & Woodland Walks provide a tranquil and relaxing corner of South East Cornwall.
Unspoiled woodland sweeps down to the Lynher estuary where you will discover secluded coves and stunning views across the water.
Modern sculptures from celebrated international artists are secreted away amongst the International Collection of Camellias, Magnolias, Rhododendrons, Azaleas, and Hydrangeas all of which in their season are a wonder to behold.
Immerse yourself in quiet tranquility, gaze out across still waters as the sun pierces the canopy with dappled light, marvel at rides of wild flowers, find your peace in Antony Woodland Garden...
