About Trebah

Trebah is the wild and magical result of over 180 years of inspired and dedicated creation. The natural spring at the top of the garden drops 10ft into the Koi Pool and cascades through drifts of brightly coloured waterside plantings.

Mediterranean and southern hemisphere plants intermingle with Trebah’s groves of huge Australian tree ferns and palms. A giant plantation of gunnera and clumps of huge bamboos give this garden a unique and exotic wildness matched by no other garden in the British Isles. It has been rated as one of the best 80 gardens in the world.

Many of the plants, such as the azaleas and rhododendrons, selected for their fragrance, have been planted in drifts on the ravine sides.

The award winning Visitor Centre houses a distinctive restaurant with a Mediterranean-style terrace, plant and gift shops.

 

A year round garden

Trebah offers the visitor a year round experience. In early spring, Trebah comes alive with a colourful array of 100-year-old rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias; in summer, the giant gunnera is a must see for young and old. In autumn, Hydrangea Valley casts clouds of china blue and soft white across Mallard Pond and in winter, our spectacular champion trees dominate the landscape, the Bamboozle looks striking,whilst plants from the southern hemisphere can be seen flowering.
