A garden with personality
Planted originally in 1927 and extended in 1936 by Moira and Lewis Reid, Moyclare is now owned and gardened by their niece, Elizabeth Henslowe and her husband Philip.
The paths meander through shady woodland, fascinating shrubberies, herbaceous borders and sunny corners, to the pergola and pond.
As might be expected in a Cornish garden there are lots of Camellias and Rhododendrons. Also to be found are fully mature trees, shrubs and tiny treasures from the southern hemisphere-some of them variegated, many rare or unusual, and others familiar.
The legend of the garden is told on storyboards with anecdotes of its history, successes and disasters and hopes for the future.
This very full acre is a garden with personality and a visit will reveal why it was once the most televised garden in Cornwall.
South of Liskeard on the B3254 just past the railway station.
