Details

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).

As Caerhays is a spectacular spring garden, public opening is normally from February to the beginning of June. Groups are welcome 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.
