Trelowarren Estate Ltd

These gardens, some 12 acres, were laid out in 1758 to complement the alterations and improvements made to the house at that time. Given that they were the last major alterations to the house, these gardens are being restored to the 18th century landscape plan which Dionysus Williams drew up, and which is now preserved at the County Record Office.

Pleasure grounds were a transitional form of landscape design somewhere between the Classical and Romantic. At Trelowarren, they represent the embracing of the English Landscape Movement with direct influence from the work of Alexander Pope in Twickenham, and also Ralph Allen at Prior Park, in Bath. In design, they follow the attributes of Rococo gardens: smallness of scale, regular irregularity and architectural incident. These are the aims of the restoration.
