Today Tregothnan is best known as the home of English tea. Inspired by a tradition stretching back generations, we began supplying England’s first and only tea in 2005, although the estate is believed to be the first place to grow ornamental Camellias outdoors almost 200 years earlier.
The belief in doing things well has persevered for many centuries at Tregothnan; home to the Boscawen family since 1335. A family passion for collecting and growing rare plants has resulted in a number of botanical firsts and is the inspiration behind our range of English tea and estate products.
Tea - Camellia sinensis - now thrives on our estate lining the tranquil waters of the Fal estuary in Cornwall. A diversity of lands also allows us to produce herbal tisanes, sustainable coppiced charcoal, Manuka and wildflower honeys, and Kea plum jam. Seasonal British flowers are sourced from the Tregothnan estate and surrounding lands for our range of hand-tied English bouquets.
Tregothnan’s Wild Escapes offer picture-perfect cottages full of Cornish character, nestled in peaceful locations on the shores of the River Fal to panoramic seascapes down remote tracts on the Lizard peninsula.
