The gardens are set in a beautiful, sheltered valley overlooking St Michael’s Mount; the woods, stream and dramatic vistas providing the perfect setting for large-scale exotic and sub-tropical planting. Interwoven with the planting is an evolving collection of contemporary artwork by internationally renowned artists such as James Turrell, David Nash and Richard Long, who have created site-specific permanent work that harmonise with the landscape.
Tremenheere Kitchen first opened its doors in March 2015 and it’s been popular with locals and holiday-makers ever since. It’s a family run business with a passion for good, honest, Cornish food and relaxed dining. They pride themselves on making everything in-house, from delicious freshly baked breads to scrummy cakes and scones; even the spicy ketchup is homemade!
By day you can indulge in a chilled glass of Polgoon wine and a freshly prepared lunch from the seasonal menu, whilst taking in views of St Micheal’s Mount from the covered terrace. Or perhaps enjoy some late afternoon sunshine with a pot of Cornish tea and homemade scones smothered in clotted cream and jam (jam first by the way!)
By night relax by the cosy log burner and tuck into a delicious supper of day boat caught Newlyn fish – perfect with a glass of our bacchus white wine. The food here is consistently good and so the restaurant is always popular – we strongly advise you book a table to avoid disappointment!
We can’t recommend a trip to Tremenheere enough. Make it one of your ‘must-see’ moments if you’re visiting West Cornwall this year.
