Welcome to Enys Gardens
The Gardens at Enys offer a unique tranquil and unspoilt experience. We offer the visitor a peaceful and relaxing experience with a wide variety of different garden vistas.
Within the 30 acre gardens lie the open meadow known as Parc Lye, where the spring show of bluebells is breath taking; the ponds, where the waterwheel can be found; the flower garden, which is gradually being restored to its former glory; a New Zealand garden, which reflects J.D. Enys’s plant hunting interests, and many woodland areas, which show different types of planting including many remarkable trees.
The bluebell festival this year is from Sunday 5th - Sunday 12th May 2013 during which time Enys will be open every day 11.00 - 4.30. However due to the very cold weather, the bluebells are a little slow and may not be at their best, so in addition to these dates we will also be open on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 2.00 - 4.30 pm and every Sunday in May from 11.00 - 4.30 pm.
Latest bluebell up date - 21st May - Michele, Hon Sec
Parc Lye is now in full bloom and should be good for bank holiday Sunday and through to first Sunday in June.
Set of keys at Enys on Sunday 19th May. If you think they are yours please email via contact page.
Enys itself (The house) is not open to the public though a lot of work has been done to remove rotten timbers and we plan to open to the public next season. The model farm buildings and stable block are used to house the history room which has information about Enys, the gardens and the Enys family.
We have a new cafe opening this season run by Cathleen Devereux which will be using the garden behind the cottage as well as an indoor area for visitors to enjoy a traditional afternnon tea with home bakes and china cups.
As with any garden Enys is a work in progress and this year you are likely to see many changes due in part to the need to clear Rhododendron ponticum. We have recently lost our iconic Monkey puzzle tree to honey fungus but have been busy planting up the apple orchard so while we loose some old favourites there are new ones to take their place.
New this season - Enys House will be open for a short tour at an additional cost of £2 per head throughout May. Ask for details on arrival.
House news - due to popular demand Enys house will be open for an extra day on Sunday 2nd June.
