Heligan

Posted on February 5, 2013 by Leave your thoughts

Located within walking distance of the site, and one of the most popular botanical gardens in the UK. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are situate close to Mevagissey, and can be accessed from the Pentewan  Valley Trail, so a car free day out. Heligan is a must see for your Cornwall trip at any time of the year. Heligan offers 200 acres to explore, and has a mysterious element.  Heligan Tearooms serves great food too.  The gardens really are very special indeed, even if gardens are not usually your thing!

The Eden Project

This is often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world. Eden is a dramatic garden, and now has a worldwide reputation. Eden is a mind blowing experience, and good on a rainy day. Eden is also now dog friendly, although there are certain rules that pooches must obey.

Watch out also for acts on during the annual Eden Sessions as they have had some impressive bands and solo artists.

This is a magnificent late Victorian country house, with 50 rooms to explore, and wonderful gardens, with rare shrubs and trees. The Estate itself is wonderful for walking and has lots of great walking paths.  One of the National Cycle Trails also passes through the Estate, and the Cycle Hub is to be here which will be a wonder for cyclists in view of all of the nearby trails.
