It’s all too easy to ignore the wonders that lie at your doorstep, wonders that people cross oceans to visit. So I’ve launched a ‘It’s Not All Tea and Scones’ series as I seek to explore my English country of residence.
Nestled by the quaint little town of Mevagissey, The Lost Gardens of Heligan offer a fantastic day of exploration hardly believing your in the South of England.
These 200 acres of garden, history and romance were only discovered some twenty-five years ago, lost for decades with its ‘history consigned to the overgrowth’. The Heligan Manor dates back more than 400 years ago to the Tremayne family, making it one of the most mysterious and romantic estates in England.
Think woodland trails and grass giants, tropical swamps and botanical gardens – there’s something for everyone. And moreover, ‘Heligan is a garden for all seasons, so whether you plan to visit in the hazy buzz of mid-summer, or the tranquillity of winter, you are guaranteed a unique experience.’
