Enys Gardens

Enys Gardens

The gardens at Enys are thought to be the oldest in Cornwall and are mentioned in ancient texts. The gardens began as formal and Italianate in style until the 19th century when they were made more relaxed, much like they are today.

The gardens consist of several distinct linked areas, each with its own character. Within the 30 acres in the open meadow known as Parc Lye, the ponds, the flower garden, the New Zealand garden, the broad walk, the summerhouse border, the stumpery, the orchard, and the Pinetum, a developing collection of conifers from around the world.

A garden café is also nestled onsite, serving up sandwiches, salads, and homemade soups as well as tea and scones – the perfect way to round up an afternoon’s walk.
