Glendurgan gardens are another treasure of the National Trust. The house is still privately owned, but the gardens are open to the public. The entrance is located in the village of Mawnan Smith that is located above Penzance and not far from Falmouth. If you walk through the gardens, past the maze and down the slope, you will eventually find your way to the far side that opens out to the beach. Perfect for kayaking, or hopping on your yacht.
