The Gardens

The main terrace at Penpol, with pots of herbs to liven up your menus, is perfect for stoking up the BBQ and enjoying al fresco dining at the table which seats 10, while enjoying the fantastic views of the harbour and surrounding fields.

Breathtaking harbour views can be enjoyed from the garden, through which two pathways lead to Polpier. There is plenty of space in the garden to stretch your legs or find a private spot for reading, relaxing or having an intimate chat.

In front of The Garden House, a stepped path through aromatic lavender, choisya and myrtle beds leads down to the purple flowering hydrangeas and magnolia. From there, follow the rosemary and jasmine scented pathway which takes you to the old school room alive with a variety of colourful climbing roses in summer.

A wide slate staircase takes you down further into the enclosed Chapel Garden with its own pond and exotic fountain. With a riot of spring flowering camellias, hostas, and luscious passion flowers climbing the walls there is always something to enjoy, while slate seats provide the perfect resting place for coffee or a glass of wine. It is a unique place for the sharing of secrets.

A wooden door then leads onto the hebe garden and another door out onto the road, where you will find yourself surprising close to the heart of Mevagissey.
