Today, they stand as a living testament to the resilience of nature and the dedication of those who appreciate historical treasures. The Peach House, an integral part of this enchanting oasis, has long been a centrepiece of the Lost Gardens of Heligan, captivating visitors with its Victorian-era grandeur.
