Sitting amidst 120 acres of woodland gardens, Caerhays Gardens are English Heritage Listed Grade II and combine beautiful woodlands with the Cornish coastline.
Caerhays boasts an astounding collection of woodland plants, many of which were originally brought over from China during the expeditions of the great plant hunters, Ernest Wilson and George Forrest. The 1911 trip, (and subsequent trips), were partly funded by JC Williams of Caerhays, where the finest camellias, rhododendrons, narcissi and primroses grow in abundance. The spectacular gardens are very much a floral sight to be seen for all who visit during spring.
