Delabole's Long Hay opens its gardens in June to show the glories of a Cornish garden

Head to Long Hay, a beautiful Cornish coastal garden which shows what can be achieved in a sometimes harsh environment. This one-acre abundant cottage garden at Treligga, Delabole opens to visitors on Sunday June 22nd from 11am to 4pm in aid of leading local wildlife charity, Cornwall Wildlife Trust. All money raised goes towards protecting Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places

The garden at Long Hay has beautiful vistas of the north coast and sea. There are herbaceous beds, shrubs, a pond, greenhouse and lawns. A natural meadow overlooking the sea has paths leading to a copse, vegetable plots and orchard. This is a fantastic example of a Cornish coastal garden in a beautiful but harsh environment.

Entry is £4 for adults and free for children under 16. Pasties and cream teas will be available courtesy of Open Gardens supporters Crantock Bakery and Roddas. Unfortunately dogs are not permitted at this event and due to the nature of the garden wheelchair access is limited.

Chris Betty, Acting Deputy Head of Marketing and Fundraising for Cornwall Wildlife Trust says,

“This is the fourth year that we have run the Open Gardens scheme and so far the most successful yet. Log Hay is well worth a visit and will help us raise vital funds to continue our work protecting Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places”
