Situated in the heart of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula Poppy Cottage Garden covers about one acre full of colour for all year – round interest.

There is also a small orchard with unusual ducks and chickens, and a small nursery area with a wide range of herbaceous plants for sale.

If time allows there is always Tregothnan, Caerhays Castle Gardens, Lanhydrock and Cotehele to name but a few.
