"When I drove past on Saturday I happened to see this lovely sofa next to a sheep in the field. Somebody must know who it belongs to."
She said staff at the Lost Gardens of Heligan also reported seeing similar fly- tipping en route to work, on the hill from Pentewan.
"Doesn't this sort of thing make you angry?" she added.
Cornwall Council said there is no excuse for flytipping as the authority provides kerbside collections for waste and recycling centres, where people can deposit their household waste free of charge.
"We will always follow up reports of fly-tipping on public land and quickly remove the waste," it said.
"While it can often be difficult to identify perpetrators, we will prosecute when we have evidence – the penalties are heavy and can include imprisonment.
"We encourage any member of the public who witnesses fly-tipping to safely obtain any details of the vehicles concerned and pass these on to us as soon as possible."
