The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Heligan, seat of the Tremayne family for more than 400 years, is one of the most mysterious estates in England. At the end of the nineteenth century its thousand acres were at their zenith, but only a few years later bramble and ivy were already drawing a green veil over this “Sleeping Beauty”.
After decades of neglect, the devastating hurricane of 1990 should have consigned the Lost Gardens of Heligan to a footnote in history.  Instead, events conspired to bring about their resoration, and the romance of their decay took a hold on our imaginations.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan are a magical place, varying from semi-formal areas of lawns and planting to wild and rambling ferns, palms and magnolias.
The estate also runs a farm along sustainable principles, and facilities include a tea room, gift shop, toilets and parking.
