We spent just over five hours walking around the Heligan estate and it's an absolute delight and well worth the £10 adult entrance fee. Wear stout shoes/boots and be prepared for a lot of walking up and down steep (and very steep) paths if you're going to see everything. The map and compass provided at the ticket office were much appreciated and a godsend when we found ourselves in the middle of a cow field. If you appreciate nature, country walks, gardening and wildlife, there's just so much to get immersed in (and I don't mean cow pats!). We even came across some lovely ancient breed pigs, one of which enjoyed a good long rub behind the ears from me.
We noticed that you can take well-behaved dogs on short leads in from October during the winter months; we saw many dog walkers.
This is definitely one place I would love to return to in the future.
