Parked to NW near road junction and memorial stone, up road to estate gate and a short quick walk around water tank.PeterD10/05/2024
The new Darjeeling is here at Tegothnan Estate as Britains only tea plantation. Made possible by the warm, humid microclimate of its sheltered position next to the warming waters of the sea creek of the River Fal. Mist often shrouds the tea at dawn and clears to become the warmest fields in Cornwall they claim. (although it did snow yesterday!). Luckily the summit is well outside the pay to enter gardens - £65 for a 2 hr tour. After water, tea is apparently the worlds most consumed drink. You can but their tea in the shop here or online. It is even exported to China. If you have very deep pockets you can buy their own manuka honey at £55 jar, or their special flora manuka honey at £255!! It is the only place outside of NZ where manuka honey is produced, but NZ experts dispute Tregothnan has planted enough manuka trees for the bees to produce pure manuka honey with medicinal properties unlike them. I'm tempted to buy one of their tea plants for £25 to grow indoors and eventual drink!Chris Pearson18/01/2023

Just inside Tregothnan estate (open mon to fri 9-5 but gate apparently unlocked). Indistinct HP in wooded area problably base of water tank or in service yard. Moored at Malpas.Denise 09/07/2016
In grounds of Tregothnan Estate where tea is grown! Access from gated track on E side of road to St. Michael Penkivel. Best visited on week days (09:00 to 17:00) when access is encouraged along the track to the Estate shop, typically we're there on a Saturday. 100m along track there is a concrete water tank on the LHS which is as a good a high point as any on this flat topped hill. Nearby is the Estate wood / service yard / buildings and behind these open woodland with nettles and no distinctive higher ground.RichardM09/07/2016
