The Garden Studio is in a natural stone building. It is accessed by external wooden stairs leading to a decking area for outside dining. Inside you will find a studio room with south-facing views over the garden, a large bathroom and a small, but fully functional galley kitchen. The studio is tastefully decorated in ivory and cream colours, with plenty of natural light flooding through the half moon and velux windows.

About the Owner

You may have gathered - we are Garden Lovers. We love our guests to enjoy the garden - daytime and evenings. Enjoy a glass of wine perhaps while sitting in the Gazebo watching the sun go down behind the distant hill or on one of the many seats in the flower beds. You are welcome to pick the fruit and vegetables from the garden, which should be available most of the season.

A hidden gem in a hidden garden

  • 5 of 5

Excellent facilities for a couple in the West Wing. The owners are delightful and the location is perfect for a chill out - not only is their garden fascinating but the many birds that visit add to the experience. We saw the garden in spring and would love to return to see the sunmmer colours. A week was not enough to explore this corner of the country. While the little towns on the coast are pretty and worth a look, we enjoyed many sights inland. The local pubs do some great fish dishes - The Globe at Lostwithiel and The Crown at Lanlivery - but the star was Trewithen at Lostwithiel, a little more expensive but well worth it.

Hidden Valley Gardens

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Garden Studio for a week and it was our first holiday in quite a while. The accommodation was spacious and well-kept and provided the perfect location for local touring. There are extensive gardens around the studio which are free to those staying and at the end of a long day of sightseeing, it was a very peaceful place to come home to. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and offered my wife a good deal of helpful advice on plants for our garden.

The hghlight of the holiday for me was taking the ferry from Fowey (about 4 miles away) to Mevagissey as I was able to enjoy a 45 minute trip on the sea and back and have a nice destination at the end of it. For my wife, the highlight was the Japanese Gardens in St Mawgam, just outside Newquay.

If we decide to holiday in Cornwall again, I would have no hesitation in returning here; it was very good value for money.
