Visiting Trengwainton Garden in Penzance, Cornwall

We love visiting Cornwall, it has to be one of my favourite holiday destinations. It just has everything I love – beautiful beaches, stunning scenery, rolling countryside, wonderful wildlife and glorious gardens. Two of the most well-known gardens within Cornwall are of course The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan but there are others here that are worth a visit too and on my latest trip to this area I spent a day at Trengwainton Garden in Penzance.

As a family with 2 very active boys, we are always on the lookout for new places to visit and things to do. They love being outside, exploring, climbing and running and we are fortunate enough to live in an area of Hampshire that is very close to the M3, which can lead us to many fantastic spots, including the latest addition to Windsor Great Park – Adventure Play. This handcrafted adventure playground has had a lot of hype around its opening so we just had to go along to see what it was all about. Here is our honest review…

It was such a fun-packed day and myself and the kids learnt so much that I wanted to share with you what your child can expect from a school visit to Butser Ancient Farm so you can prepare them and get an insight into what they will get up to.
