Trelowarren, Cornwall

The Trelowarren estate, on the Lizard peninsula, is leading the way with sustainable, green tourism guided by the genius loci.

A landscape survey and long term management plan was prepared for this historic estate which has been in the ownership of the Vyvyan family since the fourteenth century. The study focused on the restoration of the previously unrecognised mid eighteenth century formal pleasure gardens and identified opportunities for integrating improved visitor facilities with the conservation of the historic estate. The historic landscape was registered by English Heritage as a result of the study, and restoration works are being implemented under Stewardship, with gardens open to the public as a visitor attraction.

Subsequently, we helped the estate secure planning consent for the replacement of a caravan site by exemplary, award-winning eco-timeshare accommodation, enhancing the landscape, sustainability and viability of the estate. See
