A Regency Cornish country house and garden
The garden at Tregoose has been restored meticulously over the last twenty years. It contains many rare and interesting plants and shrubs, mature trees and typically Cornish camellias and rhododendrons, including the unmissable 30-foot 'Cornish Red'. There is a sunken, herbaceous walled garden (containing a fine Acacia baileyana purpurea), a croquet lawn available for guests' use, overlooked by a handsome tulip tree and eucryphia, and a recently laid-out potager, which provides flowers for bedrooms and vegetables for dinners.
Tregoose is a typical Cornish country house. Built in the early 1840's but very much in the Regency style, it is comfortable and elegant. The house stands at the centre of the garden amidst rolling Cornish countryside and is the home of Anthony and Alison O'Connor.
Between November and March some 70 varieties of snowdrop flower in the garden at Tregoose. Many of these are planted in the woodland garden, along with numerous dwarf daffodil cultivars and erythroniums, where they flourish beneath Monterey pines and cypresses, dracaenas, deciduous azaleas and the white July-scented rhododendron 'Polar Bear'.
Many of the plants growing in the garden are for sale in the nursery.
About one mile west of Grampound just off the A390.
