Are you planning a Gardens visit to Cornwall?
If the answer is yes. Cliftons in Truro is the perfect place to stay. Many of our guests visit the lovely gardens nearby and then sample the culinary delights of Truro in the evening.

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