Nice little walk to go on or to bring your dogs. I feel it could be more child related with a park or some sort of activity (i.e explorers trail). My two loved looking in the little garden houses though. I would say this is...More

Heligan is great place to stroll around even in mid Feb. Some flowers were already coming out and with less leaf cover you get a better feel for overall shape of gardens. Heligan now have some resident emus and are clearly working hard to create...More
