Lost Gardens of Heligan

We're on holiday this week - down on the Cornish Coast just outside St Austell.  So far we have walked a bit of the Coastal Path (steep and muddy!) and from Pentewan to Megavissey via the Pentewan path (steep again but beautiful).  Had comfort food (fish and chips, toad in the hole, beef stew and dumplings) and local beer (St Austell brewery - noice).

But today we want to take it a bit easy after being laid up yesterday and full of cold, so we went to the Lost Gardens of Heligan which is between St Austell and Megavissey.

Its a beautiful garden with many different areas from formal ornamental gardens, to a veg patch on a commercial scale, through the New Zealand garden, a jungle and some fantastic sculptures from charcoal and mud.

Dogs are allowed (on leads) from 1st October and through the winter but there are livestock and birds so if yours is excitable you might want to doggy day care.

We finished off back at the shop/tea room for lunch which is made with local and even Heligan grown ingrediants.

Before heading back to the cottage we took Goose to the beach so he could have a run around.....he seems to love it

As both he and himself are fast asleep now I'm guessing it was a good day out!
