Trewithen Garden
Photos by Sandra & George Pritchard



The history of the Trewithen Estate has been well documented since 1715 when the house was built by a Philip Hawkins.  The planting of the gardens did not really begin until 1778 with Thomas Hawkins. The Morrab Library has a copy of William Borlase's "Natural History of Cornwall" (1758) in which there is an engraving of a view of the house and the surrounding parkland from this time. 

Trewithen Estate has a excellent web site which makes our task this week so much easier. Their site gives you a tour of the garden with map plus its history. 

So enjoy our photos taken on Easter Sunday when we visited.
