Enys Gardens Art Festival

 Enys House & Gardens

Enys House and Gardens came alive over the weekend with a contemporary art festival including an artist trail. In 2002 the Enys Trust was set up to preserve and restore the estate. The house has been in the Enys family since the 13th Century, the house at present is in a state of disrepair which is being addressed.

Park Lye is an open meadow which has a mass of bluebells in the spring...

I visited Enys Gardens to see the art festival and was not disappointed with this amazing and creative exhibition which emcompassed both the house and gardens with an artist trail through the grounds. My favourite exhibit was the still life found in a secret walled garden.

This glorious ensemble of shape and colour in various stages of decay was magical to see - it was as if you had stumbled upon a secret feast in the middle of a magical garden.
