This National Trust property near Falmouth is a delight for younger visitors with a maze, sheltered beach, nature trails to explore and rope swings
Originally home to a wealthy Quaker family (the Foxes), these subtropical gardens sweep down through three valleys to a sheltered beach on the River Helford. Nature trails run through wild flowers and tree ferns, a miniature art gallery is tucked into an upturned boat and a tiny thatched schoolroom is still complete with blackboard tablets. In May the bluebell displays are a highlight. At every turn there is something unexpected to discover.
