On our recent family holiday to Cornwall we visited the Lost Gardens of Heligan. In our group we had a child, a teen, parents and grandparents and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We were blessed with a lovely, warm and sunny day which made things even better.
Upon arrival we went to collect our tickets that had been kindly gifted. We were given a sticker each and a book on the history of the gardens. We headed off through the woods and into the jungle – the shade cover was welcomed.
First up was the rope bridge and then we headed down to the Lost Valley. After a hilly walk up to the East Lawn we found a play area of dreams – climbing frames, swings, a new jumping pillow as well as some undercover activities for Superworm’s summer adventure – available until 10 Sept. There is a small food vendor which serves the most delicious ice cream for you to enjoy while the kids play.
We headed to the farm to look at the animals and then watched a video on regenerative farming and how important it is. On our way out we grabbed a pasty and a drink and enjoyed them on the picnic tables before our drive home.
These are just a few of our highlights, there really are so many different areas / highlights for the whole family. I would highly recommend The Lost Gardens of Heligan as a day out if you’re in the area.
You can get a family ticket for £58 which gives access to 2 adults and 3 children all day. At the moment they are also offering the opportunity to upgrade your day admission to a weekly pass for free. Form more info, check out their website here.
