Brief description of site

Enys is an 84 hectare park developed in the early-19th century around a country house, with the remains of formal gardens dating from the late-17th or early-18th century.

Brief history of site

The Enys estate is known to have been inhabited during the reign of Edward I. Reference is made in the early-17th century to the planting of fir trees, and by the early-18th century the house was accompanied by fine gardens. The house and gardens were re-designed by Henry Harrison in 1833.
