Spring Camellias

What a joy to be able to go out into the garden every day and pick from a selection of some thirty camellias? The stunning colours and beautiful, varied forms never cease to bring joy to our hearts in the darkest months of the year.

National Camellia Collection

Just an hour’s journey away, on the Tamar Valley scenic railway, and Plymouth foot ferry, Mount Edgecumbe has one of the largest camellia collections in England. Mount Edgecumbe is a Grade I listed house, garden and parkland that includes over 1,000 camellias. You can take a genteel guided walk, or just take your time to meander through the stunning blooms.
