Caerhays Castle Gardens is named the Garden of the Year
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
The stunning picturesque garden located in the south of Cornwall has been crowned as the 2016 Garden of the Year. These gardens are definitely worth a visit when staying at our boutique hotel in Fowey.
The 140 acres of garden are nestled into the Cornish countryside and offer spectacular views over the English Channel. There you can explore the castle and expansive beautiful gardens that are enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year.
The house on the estate has been owned and lived in by the Williams family for generations. Charles Williams was delighted with the recognition saying: "It is a great honour for the work of four generations of the Williams family and the four talented head gardeners at Caehays since 1897 to be recognised with such a prestigious award.
"A woodland garden like Caerhays never stands still and is never complete but this is certainly a key moment in the history and development of the plant collections here."
The gardens at Caerhays have a collection of rare plant species and is also home to the Plant Heritage Collection of Magnolias. The gardens also have beaches and coastal paths to enjoy during your visit.
