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.
Enys itself (the house) is open to the public this season on selected days. A lot of work has been done to enable this and involved removing many rotten timbers. 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 afternoon 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 lose some old favourites there are new ones to take their place.
