Japanese Garden and Bonsai Nursery — Cornwall
The Japanese Garden and Bonsai Nursery is situated in St Mawgan, near to Newquay Airport in Cornwall. It is open to visitors 7 days a week throughout the summer and there is a charge of £4.50 per adult.
We first visited the garden in the pouring rain a few years ago and found we were the only visitors to brave the weather. The rain brought a soundtrack with it and made us feel as though we were a million miles away from the Cornish beaches around the corner. Returning this year, we found bright sunshine that fell through pockets in the Acers, moss-covered gnarled tree-trunks and a gentle breeze that made the bamboo leaves flutter. Rain or shine this place is definitely one of our favourite places to be and we love that it's different with each visit.
