Tehidy was the estate of the wealthy mine-owning Basset family (featured in Poldark). The estate is now owned by Cornwall Council and open to the public free of charge as a Country Park. This includes a relatively small wildlife area where dogs are not allowed which contains exceptionally tame squirrels. The rest of Tehidy woods contains a network of paths that are open to dogs. There are bluebells in the spring and nice autumn colours within the broadleaf woodland.
