heligan gardens

Cornwall is famous for its beautiful gardens which are a complete joy for visitors whilst here on holiday.

Near to Trennicks we have two of the most famous (Heligan and the Eden Project) and are a must to see for all garden lovers.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

The wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan are a 5 minute car journey away but can also be reached by a 30 minute countryside walk.  Once there it is easy to spend a whole day exploring, maybe interrupted by lunch in their café restaurant.  Also at Heligan is Lobbs Farm Shop offering superb locally reared meat which many visitors take home with them.

The Eden Project

The Eden project has been called "The eighth wonder of the world" by some. In Eden's first full year, over 2 million people came to view this amazing spectacle, housing two of the world's climate zones, the third climate zone being Cornwall's own mild and sunny climate.

The largest Biome is so large that the Tower of London would fit inside it.
