  • The restored “Lost Gardens of Heligan” will occupy a couple of hours for the committed gardener or plant lover. This massive estate has one of the finest Gardens of its period, containing 57 acres of planted gardens, 100 acres of ornamental woodlands, and 300 acres of rides and folly temples. Henry Hawkins Tremayne, John Tremayne and John Claude Tremayne successively created and planted the 57 acres of gardens and ornamental woodlands with walks and rides. They were noted horticulturists and by the end of the century had a superb collection of trees and shrubs from Japan, China, Australasia and the Himalayas many of which can be seen today. The Ornamental garden paths have been restored by following the 1839 tithe map. The two and a half miles of foot paths were discovered underneath more than 2000 tons of fallen timber, 18 inches of loam and a complete covering of 10 foot high brambles. Holds the National Collection Camellias and Rhododendrons.
