Seeking A Top-Rated Campsite Near The Lost Gardens Of Heligan?

Overflowing with fragrances and colour, gardens are arguably most beautiful at this time of year. 

Nowhere is that more true than at The Lost Gardens of Heligan, a leading attraction close to our campsite in Cornwall.

One of the most famous botanical gardens in the UK, the Lost Gardens spans over 200 acres. Only a 10 minute drive from our campsite, Tregarton Park is perfectly positioned if you wish to visit this summer. 

With its magical history, The Lost Gardens of Heligan is ideal for those who love a sense of mystery and romance.

 Originally created by the Tremayne family from the mid-18th century to the early 20th century, the gardens fell into neglect after the First World War. However, they were rediscovered in 1990 by a descendant of the original family, who set out to bring them back to life. 

Today, the gardens are divided into several areas, each with its own unique character. These include the Jungle, the Lost Valley, and the Northern Gardens.

It’s also a great place for art lovers. 

One of the most iconic features of Heligan is the Mud Maid, a living sculpture covered in moss and plants, created by local artists Sue Hill and Pete Hill. Another well-known sculpture is the Giant’s Head, which similarly incorporates plants and natural materials.

The gardens host various events and activities throughout the year, including workshops, guided tours, and seasonal celebrations.
