“Visit in April for Bluebell Heaven”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

I visit this garden once a year purely for the bluebells.

Enys Garden belongs to a very old house which has been here for hundreds of years, part of the Enys Estate. It's a secret garden which not many people know about, even the locals are often not aware of it's existence.

Situated on the lanes between Penryn and and the village of Mylor it's easy to miss.

They open their doors every spring and the bluebells here are probably some of the best you will find anywhere in the country, there are millions of them carpeting the meadow and the woods around the property. It really is a sight which will make your jaw drop with sheer appreciation. It's a spectacularly beautiful sight to behold. Do bring the camera.

There is also a wonderful quirky little cafe area too for tea and coffee in the cobbled courtyard / kitchen garden, it's like stepping back in time. An altogether wonderful way to while away a few hours drinking in the sheer peace and quiet at this simply beautiful location,

Many fine specimens of trees are in the grounds too. The gardens proper are also certainly worth a meander around.

Enys Estate is very uncommercialised which just adds to the charm of the place.

Young children and their grandparents will adore it here in April when the bluebells are absolutely carpeting the landscape - it's a magical garden and grounds, lovely, lovely, lovely. What more can I say?

“Excellent”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We visited the gardens and were pleasantly surprised but what was outstanding was the tea rooms. Excellent value and a lovely pot of tea served with true homemade cakes which were fantastic and the slices were very generous. We understand that a young girl in her teens runs the tea room and if this is true I have to say Jamie Oliver you have some serious competition. Well done - unlike most attractions one place where you will not get ripped off!!

Reviewed 22 November 2013

Always worth a visit to Enys but the bluebells take your breath away. Like walking through a Monet painting.

“lovely bluebells but not alot else”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

The bluebells are a sight to behold but is there really a lot else to see? Quite expensive for a garden. No sign posts anywhere when your trying to find the place but maybe they want it that way, which I understand. I would go back but only in May.

“Bluebells in their thousands”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Lovely unspoilt gardens, especially in June when the bluebells carpet the grounds. There are other areas of interest which they are working on. I especially like the New Zealand garden. Dogs are welcome on a lead and young children love the lake area. The cafe is scrummy with some lovely cakes and scones, not to be missed
