Enys Gardens Bluebell Festival

If you are visiting Penryn during the season of the famous Enys Garden bluebell festival in May then you must spend some time appreciating one of Cornwall’s oldest gardens.

As far back as the early eighteenth Century Enys was acknowledged in the Magna Britania for it’s fine gardens, which suggests the gardens were already well established.

From the parkland bluebells in , Park lye, untouched for hundreds of years to the well matured and maintained gardens abundant in specimens from all over the world. It is easy to see why this is one of the most photographed gardens in Cornwall.

The house is currently closed to the public for much needed restoration work but this will make no difference to the spectacular scenery and overall pleasure of a day out at Enys Gardens.

Plus as an added bonus the tea rooms are now open and serving a variety of home made goodies including one of the most delicious cream teas around!
