The Lost Gardens of Heligan & Mevagissey

On Monday, (I’m back-dating these blog posts to the relevant date of my holiday but in reality it was nearly 2 weeks ago now!) we headed across Cornwall and towards St Austell to visit The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Like the Minack Theatre, Heligan is somewhere I really wanted to visit having never actually been before. The gardens, all 300 acres of them, were wonderful… not that we covered all of it.

The Giant’s Head
The Mud Maid
Awesome tree.
We walked up some steep steps and a hill to this ‘viewpoint’.
A sad/bored looking horse.
More piggies.
Dovecote in action.
Pistachio ice cream, mmmm.
In the jungle…
Persuaded the parents to accompany me on the rope bridge.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan are situated inland from Mevagissey, so we thought it only appropriate to pop to the little harbour town before leaving the area.

Fish-themed flags are always well-received by me.
