#myheligan Summer Photo Competition

We’d love to share in the experience of your time with us as we celebrate summer and welcoming you all back to explore The Lost Gardens of Heligan once again.

Embarking on a new journey as history meets nature…

Marvelling at age-old trees and bright flora and fauna…

Watching young eyes light up as they discover enchanted gardens for the very first time…

Use the hashtag #myheligan when uploading your photos to either Instagram or Facebook for your chance to win a return visit and a meal in the Heligan Kitchen for four.

Whether you explore the gardens regularly, have lifelong memories, or visited us once and became enchanted, we can’t wait to see what you share.

We’ll select one winner at random every month throughout the summer.

Our winner of winners will win an overnight stay in a Governor’s Suite for two with breakfast at the recently opened Bodmin Jail Hotel!

Here's a little more about the mysterious yet charming Bodmin Jail Hotel 

Step into The Bodmin Jail Hotel and discover an elegant haven of luxury and history deep in the heart of Cornwall.  Somewhere to relax, enjoy, marvel, wonder and explore.

Somewhere to make memories.

Kickback in your beautifully appointed bedroom, sink into deliciously comfortable furniture and admire tasteful décor. Once home to the Crown Jewels, painstaking restoration has transformed this monument to the past into a present-day icon – perfectly blending state-of-the-art convenience with fascinating character and intriguing, old-world charm.

Stretch out in an opulent king-sized bed, snuggle in sumptuous bedding, soak in a free-standing bath, revive in a tropical walk-in shower and nibble local refreshments from a well-stocked mini bar.

Slow down, breathe deep and savour.

Emerge from your room and look up. Our magnificent glass ceiling is a sight to behold. Just watch the stars and imagine.

No stay is complete without a drink in our distinctive and atmospheric Champagne Bar. Indulge in a cocktail, locally sourced spirit or carefully selected tipple before wandering towards The Chapel Restaurant and feasting on gourmet offerings with a Cornish twist, lovingly prepared by our amazing culinary team.

Linger at The Bodmin Jail Hotel, the once-notorious Cornwall prison, wallow in its magic and let yourself be wowed.
