Cae Hir Gardens
Voted Wales' 2nd Best Garden 2019/20 by readers of Garden News Magazine, Cae Hir is a true family garden with real heart and soul. Four acres of fully landscaped Welsh hillside provide visitors with what they often refer to as a 'real garden' to explore, meander through, gaze at and sit in. Fabulous trees and flamboyant swathes of innovative planting are punctured throughout by local slate stonework used in innovative as well as more traditional ways. At Cae Hir the natural meets the formal and riotous planting meets structure and form. This is a garden not just for plant lovers, but also for design enthusiasts.
Nestled comfortably at the bottom of the garden lies the quirky 'Tearoom in a Shed' complete with sunny patio and an extensive range of plants for sale, propagated from the garden itself.
Cae Hir is an RHS Partner Garden and one of the Great Gardens of West Wales, created, maintained and managed solely by the Akkermans family who moved to Wales from Holland in 1983.
