Within the 30 acre gardens lie the open meadow known as Parc Lye, where the spring show of bluebells is breath taking; the ponds, where the waterwheel can be found; the flower garden, which is gradually being restored to its former glory; a New Zealand garden, which reflects J.D. Enys’s plant hunting interests, and many woodland areas, which show different types of planting including many remarkable trees.
Enys itself (the house) is open to the public during the weekends of the Art Exhibition and the craft fair. A lot of work has been done to enable this and involved removing many rotten timbers. The model farm buildings and stable block are used to house the history room which has information about Enys, the gardens and the Enys family. This are is being extensively reorganised and is a work in progress.
