I had to persuade my family to come here and, after several local recommendations, it was a must whilst on holiday in Gorran Haven. Wasn't too much of a drive (10 minutes max.) and it was 100% worth it! Not too much of a cost and it was completely justified. Everything was breath-taking. Even the mud sculptures were captivating.

We had a very good lunch in the Heligan restaurant, and then walked to the Jungle, where we tried out the new rope bridge - great fun! (but if you're thinking of trying it, don't go in sandals or soft-soled shoes). The whole place is as lovely as ever. I went there frequently when I used to live near by,... More

Just the place to get away from it all, my partner loved the Jungle and when we had a down pour we took cover under a large plant leaf. This is a place that you can well spend all day exploring as just when you think you've finished there is still more to see.

Most of The Jungle was accessible with a baby's buggy. Food in the cafe was fantastic; wonderful fresh salads and a selection of pies, fritatas, and quiches; all at great value. much... More

This is a beautiful place, particularly loved the jungle. But as it's on a slop some of the walking is quite strenuous. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
