The sculpture garden of Tremenheere is a wonderful establishment. The exotic and sub-tropical botanics are home to a plethora of interesting and reflective art. ‘International renowned artists such as James Turrell RA and David Nash RA have interacted with the garden to create site-specific permanent works, all harmonising with their garden setting’.

Relish in a morning walk, admiring the flora and sculptures in this eden then replenish at the Tremenheere kitchen. With everything, except the ice cream, made on site they serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between.
