Lost Gardens of Heligan

November 8, 2016

Lost in Autumn at Heligan.

We visited the Lost Gardens of Heligan on the south coast of Cornwall during the Autumn to get a photographer’s view on one of the county’s most popular visitor attractions.

Leaves were falling from the trees as the landscape changed with the season to create a new perspective on the well-signposted pathways weaving down the valley and around the site.

The derelict gardens were uncovered in 1990 from under decades of overgrowth. A real life “secret garden”, the Lost Gardens and estate offer over 200 acres for exploration.

Discover romantic Victorian pleasure gardens along winding paths, explore ancient woodlands and adventure along raised boardwalks pass giant rhubarb, banana plantations and bamboo tunnels.

There is a definite sense of peace and calm at Heligan. You can find a peaceful bench for a snack and moment of reflection in amongst the vegetation.

Stumble upon bee hives, an insect hotel or something unusual in the trees.

And despite the time of year, there is still plenty of colour.

The locals, as recently featured on the BBC’s Countryfile, are pretty chilled.

With all this walking it was time for some refreshments, as we stumbled upon the tea room at just the right time.
