Enys is situated a few miles to the East of Penryn in Cornwall. Its beautiful gardens and woodlands are a haven of tranquility. Its ancient buildings have been largely abandoned since the mid-20th century, but are gradually awakening from their long slumber.

Practical advice for your visit

Please be aware that walking shoes or sturdy boots are advisable if you want to make the most of your visit, for although we have footpaths that can be accessed by all, there are many over the site that require regular walking attire.


Enys Gardens is an old historic garden with old pathways which are not always ideal for wheelchair users.  Many of the pathways are unmade and natural and during wet weather can be muddy and difficult to negotiate in a wheel chair.  Wheelchair users are very welcome but some areas of the gardens may not be as accessible as others, especially the pond area which is very steep.  There is a wheelchair-accessible toilet.
