“Yes, we discovered the fabulous spring garden at Prideaux Place, we were able to amble around avenues of wild garlic, newly planted white beams, delightful clusters of primroses and bluebells in a captivating landscape around the buildings that still held the ghosts of a bustling working farm.”
The Rest a While garden cafe at Hawkers Cove serves the best coffee and unbelievable cakes making the beach walk at low tide even more enjoyable and served by the welcoming owners.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan were a magical delight and well worth the drive across to St. Austell. The long walk around the estate was an added bonus for those who like to stride out on a misty rainy day with budding trees through ever changing areas of garden. The whole garden is run by helpful and happy staff willing to chat and enjoy the gardens with you. The food is good.
Obviously lunch at the Rick Stein harbourside deli is a must, eating around the back on tables in the sun away from the wind.
