Cornwall’s mild climate means that sub-tropical plant species thrive on our shores and in the shelter of our lush valleys. And when you stay at River Valley Holiday Park, there is no shortage of Cornwall’s great gardens to be discovered nearby.
Just three miles from your tent or caravan, you can follow the river valley to The Lost Gardens of Heligan on foot or by bike. With more than 200 acres to explore, you really can lose yourself for a day in this enchanting valley garden, which includes the largest collection of tree ferns in Europe, thickets of bamboo, a banana plantation and the ancient woodlands of ‘The Lost Valley’.

Pinetum Park is a testament to the dedication and enthusiasm of amateur horticulturists Ray and Shirley Clemo, who travelled the world collecting seeds and plants to establish this remarkable Garden.
