Trematon Castle has belonged to the Duke of Cornwall since 1066. Inside the ruins of this glorious miniature fortress, an early 19th century white stucco villa was built. The new owners Julian and Isabel Bannerman, greatly respected garden designers, are creating a remarkable Cornish garden in the extensive grounds.
Julian and Isabel Bannerman have worked at Highgrove for the Duke of Cornwall, for Jacob Rothschild at Waddesdon Manor and the Duke of Norfolk at Arundel among many others. ‘Their signature act is to create dreamy English country gardens filled with historical illusions; a world of roses and ruins, formal allees and follies’. This is the first year that Trematon Castle house and gardens will be open to the public and our group will be one of the first groups to be able to visit.
