How to find us
Enys Gardens, St Gluvias, Penryn, TR10 9LB
Driving to Enys
We are located on the backroads between Mylor and Penryn.
If you are coming from Truro on the A39, drive past the Norway Inn and then take the SECOND turning on the left towards Mylor Harbour/ Pandora Inn. Follow the country road and then soon take first right, signposted for Enys Gardens, follow the road over a cross-roads and you will soon come to the garden entrance on your left hand side.
Coming from Falmouth/Penryn please follow the B3292 to the Texaco petrol station (on your left) and shortly afterwards you will come to a brown sign to Enys Gardens, pointing up Truro Hill. Go up Truro Hill and follow the road, looking out for another sign to Enys Gardens, which will bring you to the garden entrance on your right hand side.
The entrance to the Gardens is on a gravel track through a field with livestock. Please drive slowly and enjoy the views over Falmouth to the right.
Please be aware that we operate a one way system into the gardens, the exit drive will bring you out 60m down the road from the entrance drive towards Penryn.
Enys Gardens is an historic garden (reputedly the oldest in Cornwall) with old pathways which are not always ideal for wheelchair users. Some areas of the gardens may not be as accessible as others, especially the pond area which is very steep. Many of the pathways are unmade and natural and can be difficult to negotiate after wet weather.
Access to the ground floor of Enys House (when open during events) is possible via a wheelchair ramp.
A disabled toilet with changing facilities for children is located at the back of the Enys Tea Rooms cottage.
A wheelchair is available to borrow, free of charge, on a first-come first-served basis. It is kept in the History Room, which is in the old Carriage Shed, opposite the Clock Tower.
Practical advice for your visit
Please be aware that walking shoes or sturdy boots are advisable if you want to make the most of your visit, for although we have some footpaths that can be accessed by all, there are many over the site that require regular walking attire, especially after heavy rainfall.
Dogs on leads welcome; please clean up after your dog, using the bins provided.
