This really is like the secret garden. We first visited Heligan in the late 90's not long after it had been discovered and have watched it come slowly come back to life.
This year we returned to Heligan after some time and really enjoyed it, the best bit is getting lost, retracing your steps and finding other parts of the garden. The gardens are large and you could easily spend all day here. Every age group and ability is catered for.
Our daughter enjoyed the rope bridge in the jungle.
Any visit to the Gardens of Heligan will be especially poignant this year given the Centenary of World War 1, many of the gardeners joined up to fight and this is when the gardens slowly went to sleep.
There is a large cafe and picnic areas. The usual shop and within the car park a farm shop.
