GARDENS, CORNISH HERITAGE COLLECTION, SWITZERS BUTTERY & TEA ROOM*
REFRESHMENTS - There will be a very limited service of cold drinks, chocolate, crisps, ices and confectionery during 2019 as refurbishment continues. PICNICS IN THE GARDENS Picnics are most welcome but we would explain that the bandstand, upper lawn and our small tea room are usually 100% reserved, for those visitors who purchase our own refreshments when our tea room is open.

If you do bring your own picnic you are welcome to sit on the bandstand [providing the tea room is closed] where there are tables, seats and chairs, or on the lower lawn, and in the woodland garden. When the refreshment counter is open we can provide hot drinks or cold ones too.

We ask all of those who take picnics to be green and take their litter home, especially any plastic items as we are a plastic-free zone. Please leave our tables clean and tidy and please do not discard any food or rubbish in our bins.
