Welcome to Penrose Water Gardens

Penrose Water Gardens, with over 20 years of experience in wholesaling aquatic plants to English and Welsh garden centres, is now open to the public. We offer a wide range of water and garden plants, plus Cornish crafts, in a scenic, natural setting.

Plan your visit.

Open all year daily from 10.00 – 16.00.  Due to the weather it may be necessary to close the gardens in winter due to excess surface water and flooding on the paths.

Plant sales are available by appointment, or between 11.00 and 16.00 on weekends.

Please note: Penrose Kitchen has now closed.
