The national trust have dedicated this space to wildflowers as a nature reserve for plants and wildlife; it is one of a handful of places in the UK like this. When visiting the poppies and other wonderful wildflowers, please stay on the assigned footpaths to avoid damaging the plants, and so many other visitors can enjoy it too.Website

Parc Lye, an open meadow on the Enys Estate near Mylor Bridge, a beautiful old house and garden, is a joy to wander around. However, every year from the middle of April to mid-May, bluebells start to blossom but not just one or two; it fills this field. As you approach, a carpet of bluebells awaits, believed to be undisturbed since ancient times. It is a sight that must be experienced to understand its beauty fully.Website
