Walk straight ahead towards the Northern Gardens, or turn right into the Woodland Walk.
We turned right along a sheltered and shady path venturing into over 80 acres of ancient woodland.

Once past the Grey Lady another choice presents itself - continue on along the Georgian Ride eventually arriving at the Lost Valley, or cut across to the Jungle?
As the walk back up from the Lost Valley is described as steep, or very steep in places we decided to take the less strenuous path and explore the Jungle.
Everywhere you turn there's a "Kodak" moment waiting to surprise you.
We walked past the Steward's House, which is now a tearoom, and the Poultry Orchard.
Whichever way you decide to walk around the Lost Gardens Of Heligan eventually the path leads back to two very important places.
The Willows Tearoom - where you can sample many delights such as savoury snacks, sweet treats and wonderful pasties all freshly baked at the on site Heligan bakery.
Oh! They bake wonderful scones too for delicious Cornish cream teas.
After tea - shopping!
The Heligan shop is a wonderful place where you can find high quality items such as stationery, prints tapestries, toiletries and much more.
Next door the Heligan Plant Centre is brimming with all sorts of marvellous plants, gardening equipment, seeds and bulbs.
I stocked up on Cornish Spring bulbs.
They all had such fabulous names - Pipit; Niveth; Cheerfulness; Chuckles and Rip Van Winkle.
I'll be planting them in the garden and garden urns soon, for a marvellous display next year.
