Lovely gardens and worth a visit. We have young children who enjoyed a wander around. If you like gardens you will enjoy as well. I’m sure.

I’ve lived in the Penzance area for 20 years, but I had never heard of Enys until recently. May is definitely the best month to visit as the bluebells are most impressive, and the rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias are in bloom. The gardens need a...More
