Once a year Enys House and Gardens host their Bluebell Festival. A feast for the eyes, the bluebells are some of the most impressive in the country.
The gardens are extensive with the bluebell field the star of the show. Once you’ve stood and stared at the rich blue carpet that seems to stretch on forever, take some time to wander throughout the orchard, flower garden and down to the lake.
Although the gardens are open on a more regular basis, the house only opens to the public for Enys’ festivals. It’s one of my most favorite interiors and I’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot of time in the house for work and pleasure [it’s a wedding venue]. The building is watertight and structurally safe, but otherwise semi derelict. Much of the building is stipped back to its bare bones making it architecturally and historically interesting. The paint is crackled and flaking. It’s got atmosphere and a style all of its own.
