Hidden Gem

Sometimes you discover a place that is so fab, that you immediately want to rush out and tell everyone about it. Then you stop, and wonder whether that will spoil its very special 'hidden gem' quality.

Well, I'll let you in on the secret......

There is a beautiful garden tucked away in the south west corner of Cornwall that if you are lucky enough to stumble upon will make you feel as though it's your very own.

Potager Garden and Glasshouse Cafe is a firm favourite with our family and we often hold birthday parties here come rain or shine. The garden was rescued from an overgrown nursery and lovingly brought back to vim and vigour, it features soft drifts of flowers, natural pathways, games of boule and badminton.

The Glasshouse Cafe is run by a lovely couple called Arwen and Tanya who use the freshest produce straight from the garden itself. We treated ourselves to a delicious tagine, decorated with colourful flowers. 

We left with full tummies and smiles, the perfect antidote to stress.


  1. Oh my word! This is JUST my sort of place!! Thanks Antonia, firmly on list of places to get to on one of our trips. Lovely photos xxx

  2. Got to be worth the journey just for the homemade cake alone! I'm sure I'll be back there for a visit and more photos soon :-)
