The
Experience

In Jonathon and Annabel’s house and garden there’s a comforting sense of all being well. Inside the 1730s house, shimmering wooden floors are covered with Persian rugs and light pours into every elegant corner; big guest rooms exude taste and simplicity and you breakfast well in the panelled dining room. This is one of Cornwall’s loveliest private gardens, a tribute to the hard work and brilliant plantsmanship devoted to these seven acres. Jonathon’s parents arrived in 1974 to find a Miss Havisham of a garden – today it is a fabulous rectory garden. Discoveries include a sunken cobbled yard thought to have been a carriage wash. Snowdrops and daffodils bloom in their thousands; the tree and shrub collection is outstanding; rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas and magnolias (many 40 years old) and secret paths lead from gently sloping lawns deep into woodland. Much to admire: a wonderful collection of trees, many chosen with autumn colour in mind, but of particular note is a magnificent Cornus Controversa Variegata on the front lawn. Work continues apace: four obelisks adorned by 40 sweet-smelling Cornish roses are the latest addition to the walled garden.

Reviews

Lovely setting ,Annie and Jonathan great hosts .Breakfast a treat and the house and gardens make a great place to stay as we did for 5 nights.

Chris

A special jewel of a home - beautifully decorated straight out of "country" magazine pages. Annie Croggan was charming and perfect in every way. Very close to Eden Project and Lost Garden of Helligan. Couldn't have found a more perfect place from which to venture out to these Cornwall garden star attractions. We recommend Creed House to the most discerning visitors.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jonathon & Annabel Croggon

  • Close to Trewithen Gardens (5 mins) and Carhayes Gardens (15 mins) both especially stunning in the spring when the Magnolias and Rhododendrons are in flower. The magical Lost Gardens of Heligan are only 10 mins away.
  • Based on the edge of the Roseland Peninsular a favourite trip would be to the beautiful fishing village of St Mawes (25 mins away) via St Just in Roseland’s pretty church and creek before crossing the King Harry ferry to Trelissick Gardens
  • Walking the coast path with a stop for a picnic or a pub lunch is a wonderful way to enjoy our peaceful part of Cornwall. In St Mawes you can find all you need for a fantastic picnic and then take the foot ferry over to St Anthony’s Head & lighthouse.
  • In the summer spend an evening at one of the Open Air Theatre productions put on at many National Trust or English Herritage venues. The best is the Minnack Theatre (50 mins) for a matinee production with a picnic is heaven while looking out to sea.
  • To the East of us is the picture-postcard town of Fowey with many lovely shops, restaurants and its du Marrier connections. A trip to Fowey could be tied in with a visit to Lanhydrock House, Pencarrow House or Trerice House.
  • Take the stunning train trip from St Erth to St Ives for lunch overlooking the bay before driving to Zennor and Gurnards Head. From there, if you have time, you can cross to Penzance and St Michaels mount before heading home.
