Autumn at Trebah is a very special time
As a carpet of colour sweeps through, the garden transforms into a tranquil, golden wonderland. We might be biased, but we know Trebah is one of the hidden gems when it comes to the best autumn walks in Cornwall. Yes, the weather can be drizzly and unpredictable at times, but so is August, so why not take a chance to enjoy these wonderful colours!
As the golden oranges and burnt reds start to come alive against the greenery along the shelterbelt of the garden, it creates an almost ethereal border to the valley between, creating a stunning frame of the sea.
A definite highlight is the acers, with arguably some of the most vibrant and impressive colours in the whole garden. In particular towards and behind Alice’s seat, you will notice the vibrant reds of Acer palmatum ‘Skeeter’s Broom’ and the stand-out yellows of Acer forestii ‘Alice’.
As you walk around the garden, you’ll find yourself looking up to our magnificent champion trees, looking bare compared to months before. However, if you instead look down to the ground, you’ll notice the dainty pink reflexed flowers of the Cyclamen hederifolium.
After you’ve wondered through the garden, why not stop in the café for some homemade soup? Or visit the gift shop to find the perfect blanket to take home and cosy up with.
As the world outside prepares for winter's arrival, the autumn garden stands as a testament to the ever-changing cycle of nature. So grab a coat and hat, a warm cup of hot chocolate and take a leisurely stroll through the garden, you'll be enchanted by the wonders it has to offer.
