Bonython Estate Gardens
Situated on England’s southernmost Lizard Peninsula, Bonython Estate Gardens offer excitement and surprises, with colour and interest in all seasons.
Remodeled in recent years, to include, a contemporary water feature behind the delightful Georgian Manor, an eighteenth century Walled Garden with colour- themed herbaceous borders, a Traditional Potager Garden, and an orchard of Cornish variety apple trees, on through parkland to a series of small lakes in a sheltered valley.
Each lake has a different atmosphere and planting…. Tranquility, from the specimen trees and shrubs reflected in the water; vibrant colour, from the hot, South African summer garden and exotic, from the mysterious quarry lake with creeper clad cliffs, a fernery and surrounding bamboos.
Magnificent in spring with traditional Cornish Rhododendrons, azaleas, woodland flowers and bulbs, colour develops through summer with soft harmonies of the herbaceous beds to explosions of hot colour in the South African areas with drifts of ornamental grasses, cannas, rubeckias and proteas.
About Bonython Estate
Bonython Estate is a traditional, mixed agricultural Cornish estate with the 18th century Manor, farm and woodland stretching almost from one side of the peninsular (The Helford River) to the other (the beach at Poldhu Cove) with both shores just over a mile away.
Bonython is perfectly placed for exploring the beautiful coves and coastal pathways.
