Caerhays Castle set in Grade II listed woodlands in a sheltered valley full of rare plants. Positioned on the south coast it is a singular and beautiful place to explore the wonderful gardens.

Home to a National Magnolia Collection the gardens here at Caerhays are a spring-time wonderland for visitors. The 120 acre woodland gardens are English Heritage Listed Grade II*. The origins of this historically important collection of Chinese plants can be traced back to the work of the great plant hunters Ernest Wilson (1876 – 1930) and George Forrest (1873 – 1932).

The gardens are open to the public normally from February to the beginning of June, due to the gardens being a spectacular spring garden. The garden is open to groups throughout the year with prior booking. There are structured walks around the garden giving views over the Estate and grounds, the lake, and out to sea. Guided tours of the gardens by the Head Gardeners are available and usually last around 1½- 2 hours, these must be prebooked.

Dogs are welcome in the gardens on leads.

Caerhays Castle will announce their RHS Lecture programme for 2017 shortly.
