Opening Times, Fees, Location, and Contact Details

Moyclare Cornish Garden - Liskeard

Being a Cornish garden Moyclare is at its most spectacular in the Spring and early Summer. We are normally open to the public, without appointment, from April to the end of August.

For 2020 ~alas~

we will be unable to open.

Winter storm damage has been too great.

We will be unable to rectify matters sufficiently this year.

We plan to reopen as usual next year, 2021.

The rest of this web site remains 'as normal', apart from the following explanatory paragraph

Our garden is well sheltered from the elements, but the several storms earlier this year have brought down some trees and branches. Clearing them, and the damage caused, and allowing shrubs to re-establish, will occupy much of our time. We do not have a huge staff to assist.

Additionally ~ the threat and uncertainty of COVID-19 reinforces our decision to postpone opening for this year, 2020. We hope to be back to normal in 2021.

That is why we have not changed the rest of our website.

For clubs or groups a guided tour of the garden can also be arranged at other mutually convenient times, but strictly by prior booking only.

As befits any show garden the most important plants and shrubs are labelled, and storyboards give detailed information.

We welcome fellow gardeners and their friends to the garden and we are usually very happy to chat and swap cuttings but don't help yourself - please ask first - it might be the wrong time of year, or there could be a better specimen elsewhere in the garden. (There could even be some already rooted cuttings or young plants available.)

There is a modest entrance fee: adults £4.00, accompanied children free, seniors £4.00, disabled £4.00, pre-arranged parties £4.00pp.

Most areas of the garden are accessible by wheelchair. Toilet facilities are available. Tea and coffee and home-made cakes are available during your visit. A selection of plants is for sale. Sorry - but our cats will not allow dogs.

From the centre of Liskeard take the road to Liskeard railway station (main line Paddington-Penzance, branch line to Looe). We are 500 yards/metres beyond the station on the left. Ample parking is available for cars next door at Morley Tamblyn Lodge - by their kind permission. Coaches can drop passengers off in the lay-by just past the gate. A map is available.
