Tretheague Manor is a Grade II* listed Georgian Manor house built in 1744 by the architect Thomas Edwards.
Situated in Stithians this is an exciting new project for Juniper gardens restoring and working on this historic garden. It is surrounded by parkland at the front with beautiful specimen trees including Lime and Maples, paddocks to the sides and a walled garden to the rear. The grounds had been used in the late 19th and early 20th century to host horticultural exhibitions and various garden parties and fetes. However in recent times Tretheague has not had the care and attention it needs and it is fair to say the gardens are somewhat overgrown as seen in the first photos which show the walled gardens to the rear of the property as when I first arrived in at the end of July 2015.
Many trees and shrubs have been left to grow largely unattended to far out fill their originally alloted space making the gardens feel dark and chlostrophobic and so the process has begun of restoring the gardens. With a fresh injection of enthusiasm and funding from a London financier Tretheague is now undergoing somewhat of a renovation and revival both inside the house and out in the gardens.
