Tourist attractions recognised by guide
Trebah Gardens
The Good Britain Guide highlights three South West attractions
South West tourist attractions figure prominently in the latest Good Britain Guide.

The award for Farm Park of the Year has gone to DairyLand, near Newquay in Cornwall.

Trebah Gardens, near Falmouth, has been named Garden of the Year by the 2004 guide.

There is also recognition for Living Coasts in Torquay, which has been given the Newcomer of the Year accolade.

The guide describes DairyLand as "dairy farming with an entertaining twist and lots of fun things to do".

Ravine garden

The attraction offers pony and hay rides, bottle feeding of animals, pat-a-pet and hands-on milking among its activities.

Trebah is a 26-acre ravine garden which provides a sub-tropical home to a unique collection of rare and exotic plants, trees and shrubs winding down to a private beach on the Helford River.

The guide says: "This sub-tropical ravine is beautiful for a summer's day out, with its private beach down at the bottom."

Living Coasts saw more than 100,000 visitors pass through its doors within the first few months of it opening earlier this year.

The guide described the attraction as "a fresh, new look at the birds, animals and plants of the world's shorelines".
