Our gardens are once again open for the public to enjoy walking, playing, picnicking and exploring.

Port Eliot is incredibly proud of its 100 acre Repton landscaped gardens. These encompass a vast rhododendron garden, maze, bowling green, orangery, arboretum and magnificent view of the estuary – not to mention the majestic St Germans viaduct stretching over it.

For more information on how to make your picnic, walk, tour, wedding or event extra special please get in touch with us through info@porteliot.co.uk

The site on which Port Eliot sits is to the north of a steep hill which protects it from the prevailing south-westerly winds. On the highest point of this hill there is an Iron Age ring fort, from which its early inhabitants could see down the estuary towards the sea. It was from this direction that the greatest danger came by way of marauding seafarers.

Between the Port Eliot gardens and the village sits St Germans Priory Church. which is said to be the finest, oldest, historic church in Cornwall. Once a cathedral and part of the Pilgrim’s Way, it is an architecturally fascinating building with a well preserved Norman doorway and Burne Jones’ windows as part of its fine features. www.stgermanspriory.info
