Mark Rowe, BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards judge said of The Lost Gardens:

“A really deserving winner. Despite its popularity, Heligan retains a really local feel and the story behind its re-discovery and restoration is heart-warming.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan proved an incredibly popular winner, racing to first place many thousands of votes ahead of any other candidate. This is testament to the extremely wide appeal of these enchanting gardens.”

The beautiful garden's are situated on the edge of St. Austell, close to the Carlyon Bay Hotel. We are able to offer discounted entry here at our Reception. 

The celebrations continue across the county, with the Minack Theatre, with it's exquiste views was crowned Landmark of the Year.
