In late April and early May it’s bluebell season in the UK, and there are some very special places to visit in Cornwall if you want to see them at their best.
The top places to see bluebells in Cornwall include gardens which incorporate a woodland setting. Outside of these more formal gardens, there are other areas open to the public, such as Tehidy Woods near Camborne, Cardinham Woods near Bodmin, along the River Fowey near Respryn or Idless Woods near Truro.
Here we list our favourite places in the Cornwall For Gardeners Directory which stand out in bluebell season, including those which put on special bluebell tours or events. Other places of note are Glendurgan near Helford and Trewidden near Penzance.
Learn all about this native wildflower during the bluebell festival at Godolphin, near Penzance. Stroll through the tranquil woods to admire the carpet of blue. Visit the interactive information display or join a bluebell walk and talk to gain a deeper insight into this beautiful wildflower.
The festival is on from now until May 20th. More details on the Godolphin site here.
