There are so many beautiful places to see Spring bluebells here in Cornwall.
Walking through dappled woodlands and valleys of blue is one of the best ways to spend a sunny Spring day, for sure! Some of my favourite places to see the bluebells include Godolphin House, Trelissick Gardens and Tehidy Woods.
But on this particular day, Olivia and I chose a walk around Enys Gardens.
I must be honest, I’d totally forgotten this place existed until Olivia mentioned it earlier. I’ve heard about it once or twice in passing, but have never been before – which is silly considering how close it is to everywhere I usually am (tucked away on the outskirts of Penryn)!
The privately run estate is pretty vast – around 1,000 acres of farmland and woodland, with 30 acres of maintained gardens and meadows – and is famous for its bluebells. We visited towards the end of the season really; their main ‘bluebell festival’ week is the 29th April ’til 7th May – but it was still truly stunning.
There’s often events here too, and visitors can walk around the old houses and stables, or stop off at the cafe for a cream tea! I hadn’t realised but dogs are also allowed on leads; we saw lots when we were there! It’s a great place to take them to let them have a sniff at all the flowers and plants along the way (just don’t let them jump in the ponds…).
I’m excited to visit again with Pepper for a relaxing dog walk, and I’m glad to have discovered this place that’s so nearby and so peaceful. Also I have to say I love the name… for years I’ve vowed to name my son Enys if I have children! Random fact about me, but there ya go.
If you’re keen to go see the fantastic carpet of bluebells at the Enys woodlands, you’ve probably got about a week or two left to see the full beauty! But don’t worry, there are plenty of other flowers – like the gorgeous wisteria – to have a smell of as well.
Have you got out to see the bluebells this Spring?
