Lost Gardens of Heligan in Spring

For months now we have been meaning to make it to Heligan, it is so spectacular whatever the season. After not making it for one reason or another we finally got the chance when we had friends visit last weekend. If you ever wonder quite how much time you will need to go around Heligan – make a guess, double it and then add an hour – it seriously is huge!

I’d say the fourย or so hours we did actually spend was definitely a whistle stop tour and we are already planning our next trip in a couple of weeks. However, the time was wonderful and we even had time to fit in coffee and cheese scones!
