Trelissick

St Ives Bay Holiday Park > Gardens > Trelissick

The garden as it looks today with canopies of Beech, sweet chestnut, and specimen conifers is roughly from 1870 onwards.

The main plant collections are Magnolias, Camellias, Rhododendrons and Hydrangeas. Formal lawns sweep to estuary views.

The garden has always evolved, with each owner adding an interesting layer. The bulk of the plant collection is from the 1930’s to the present day so it has a relatively modern atmosphere with references to the past reflected in the fabric of the garden – Victorian brick walls to stone walls and wooden summerhouses.

Different owners added their history and plants, and the National Trust have added to the collection making a rich and fascinating place to explore.

Light influences the appearance of the garden at this time of the year and in many ways brings the true magic of Trelissick to life. These colours and the light create contrast, bringing the best out of the views and setting of the place.

The mild climate often sees plants growing and flowering right into November. In the borders late flowering dahlias, canna and gingerlillies will carry on producing interest.

In all areas of the garden trees and shrubs such as the maples and liquid amber, turn purples, reds and yellow as the leaves fall. The hydrangea collection sees the old mop heads turning different colours and creating lacey frosty patterns.
