One of Cornwall’s best-kept secret gardens, Antony Woodland Garden and Woodland Walk has been open for a month this year, and it certainly hasn't disappointed in colour and abundance of flowers!

For those of you who’ve never visited before, Antony Woodland Garden is a place where time has no bounds. A wild garden where there are no rules or restrictions. Just seemingly endless woodlands to wander through, relax in and marvel at all that mother nature has to offer.

The spring blooms and growth around the gardens are phenomenal this year. From eye-catching camellias to magnificent magnolias, the grounds are transforming every day, awaiting your visit.

A single ticket for the Antony Woodland Garden costs only £9 and admits one person and up to two children under 16.

Antony Woodland is delighted to offer Great Gardens of Cornwall and National Trust members a discount of £2 off the price of single-day tickets. This offer is also open to non-National Trust members who visit Antony House on the same day (tickets will be required as proof). Please purchase your tickets on arrival at the Gardens.

To support their garden trust, get more out of your visits and enjoy Antony Woodland Garden throughout the year, please consider purchasing a Family Season Ticket in 2024.

It costs £40 per year and you receive unlimited access (during official entrance times) for two adults and two children, as well as regular email updates as to what is in season and any events or charity days.

Single Season Tickets are also available for just £25. These allow entry for one adult and two children under 16.



Antony’s beautiful setting is a Repton landscape with formal gardens near the house, and green vistas to the tidal river Lynher edged by the informal tranquil Antony Woodland Garden. Walking around this “undiscovered” Cornish garden has been described as visiting “Camellia Heaven”.

The Woodland Garden consists of the older “Wilderness”, with plantings of camellias, rhododendrons, magnolias and other ornamental trees and shrubs, and “Westdown” – a sheltered valley where massed camellias, planted since 1940, provide a dark glossy under-storey from which “torches” of Asiatic magnolias rise – their falling tepals mixing with the colourful camellias beneath.

Sir Richard Carew Pole says – “Each generation has loved the place – I see one’s job as handing it down to the next generation looking even better than when it was handed down to me.”


Incidentally, if you are a gardening club or a group of individuals keen to arrange a guided tour, Antony Woodland Garden would be delighted to host your visit.

Please contact Richard, the head gardener, via email, [email protected], with details of your group, numbers, suggested dates, any special interests. Please include your contact telephone number and he will call to discuss details, price and timings, for example a specialist evening tour after normal closing hours.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Garden office, [email protected] or telephone 01752 815303.
