Enys Gardens

Famous for its bluebells and tranquil atmosphere, Enys is thought to be the oldest garden in Cornwall.


There are many varieties of plants and shrubs to be seen throughout the season.

Probably the most valuable asset to the garden is its microclimate. It is virtually frost free and this, together with the mild and temperate influence of the Gulf Stream, enables many tender plants and trees to flourish.

One of the most important of these is the Peruvian Laurel, one of the few specimens growing in England today. There is also a Maidenhair tree (Ginkgo Biloba) which is said to be the tallest specimen outside Kew Gardens.
