“Proper food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Wow! Went to Heligan recently for lunch after not going for quite a while, as food used to be dull and boring, and what a transformation. I think the layout has been changed slightly and the presentation of the food was fantastic! The salads were colourful and fresh and the main courses were seasonal and interesting. I chose a pulled lamb hot roll (meat from they're estate) and a selection of salads. My friend had roast pork with Heligan apples and I nearly ate half of her plate too, it was so delicious. Good job its a long walk round the gardens!

“Fabulous, exotic valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The jungle area is stunning and you need to have the time to get round it all. All of it is lovely but the jungle is exciting. Their plant sales are really cheap too with some unusual plants at prices that are low compared to other places. Good cakes too!

This was the 3rd or 4th time I've been there, this time with Australian friends who loved it. Just as beautiful as ever.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This beats the Eden Project hands down. A lot more laid back, the beautiful lay and the wonderful history gripped me for the entire visit.

I'll be visiting again. Soon!

“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

An awesome place. We were amazed at what we saw and we enjoyed exploring the different areas. Excellent value for money and well worth the £11 entry fee. The Jungle garden is magical and as we wandered throughout the gardens we thought we were back in New Zealand. A very beautiful peaceful place with lots of benches to sit on and take in the wonderful surroundings. We loved the wheelie benches on the large grass area so you were always sitting in the sun if you wanted too! An excellent hide containing lots of information including short films etc.
