Opens October 7, 2021 4:07 pm
Closes November 8, 2021 11:59 pm

Gardens Illustrated has teamed up with the Budock Vean Hotel to offer a relaxing two-night stay on the banks of south Cornwall’s tranquil Helford River. Set in 65 acres of glorious gardens and woodland, the award-winning hotel is a hidden gem.


Alongside its beautiful gardens, the four-star hotel offers excellent leisure facilities, including its own nine-hole golf course, a 15m indoor pool, two all-weather tennis courts and a heavenly spa. It is also perfectly placed for exploring the South West Coast Path, and the area’s many historic towns and villages, beaches and traditional waterside pubs.


The hotel is a short walk from two of Cornwall’s most celebrated gardens – the stunning Trebah Garden, a 26-acre subtropical paradise, and the National Trust’s Glendurgan Garden, with three valleys full of natural beauty and amazing plants – and your prize will include entry for two to both of these gardens as well as a relaxing one-and-a-half-hour river cruise, courtesy of Helford River Cruises, from which you will be able to catch a glimpse of the gardens from the water and soak up the sights of this most beautiful part of Cornwall.

Competition prize includes

  • A two-night stay for two at the Budock Vean Hotel in a Signature room, including a hearty Cornish breakfast both mornings.
  • A four-course dinner for two on both evenings.
  • Entry to both Trebah Garden and the National Trust’s Glendurgan Garden.
  • River cruise for two.
