Caerhays Castle, which is owned by the Williams family is located in a sheltered valley overlooking Porthluney Cove on the South Cornish Coast equidistant from Truro and St Austell.

The surrounding parkland and woodland gardens were created originally from the discoveries of the plant hunters in China shortly after the turn of the 20th century. Since then a great deal of hybridisation work and especially the creation of the first x williamsii camellias has taken place at Caerhays to create the extensive woodland gardens which visitors can admire and enjoy today. Caerhays is at its best during the spring months, the garden is ONLY open from mid-February to mid-June (7 days a week). The castle, where the family still live is only open for more limited periods so please do check opening times carefully.

This property offers free access to HHA Friends and Members during normal opening hours - please check opening times.
