“The Lost Gardens of Heligan give you a taste of the exotic, just 5 minutes drive from Mevagissey. It has a fascinating history, abandoned during the war, only to be rediscovered and brought back to life years later. We love visiting in May/June to see the gigantic rhodedendrons, and seeing what's growing in the fruit and vegetable gardens. There are jungle-like gardens to explore including a rope walk and stunning sculptures in the woods that look like they are growing from the ground. They organise fun events throughout the year - check their website for details.”
“Well worth a visit for a bit of art and incredible beach views. The light really is different in St Ives, so it's easy to see why so many artists have been drawn there over the years. ”
“A National Trust Property with a beautiful house, lovely walks and cycle trails, a playground and good cafe! ”
“Small yet delightful museum and garden that was formerly Barbara Hepworth's home and studio. Perfect coupled with a potter around St Ives town and harbour. ”
