The Japanese Garden in St. Mawgan is just a stones throw from our front door and is a highly recommended way to spend a few peaceful hours.
An oasis of tranquillity set in 2 acres, the water stroll and Zen gardens offer a unique experience, both physical and spiritual. Stand on the ‘Tea-house’ balcony, watch the fish glide by, listen to the waterfall tumbling into the pool.Stroll the myriad of paths, absorbing the sights and smells and much more. A journey through this garden is an experience to remember.
Spring: The garden awakens. Japanese maples unfurl in brightest reds and greens. Cherry blossom, camellias and more.Streams gurgle and birdsong fills the air.
Summer: Azaleas, Japanese maples and an abundance of flowers and foliage in full splendour. Bamboos whisper in gentle summer breezes. Dragonflies and damselflies hover over the swimming koi.
Autumn: Japanese maples perform spectacular colour changes: bold and soft golds, greens, oranges and reds transform the garden, before dropping gently into rest.
Winter: Fantastic shapes in wood and stone, hidden in summer, reappear now. Evergreens and winter flowering plants colour the landscape, and the slumbering tress display their intricate forms. Dramatic architecture revealed.
The gardens are open alll year, 7 days a week. Closed Christmas Day.
