The much-anticipated 2016 Garden of the Year award has been won by a Cornish Castle
Caerhays Castle and Gardens, boasts picturesque views across the English Channel, and has been awarded 2016 Garden of the Year by the Historic Houses Association, sponsored by Christie's. Now in its 32nd year, the prestigious national award has been designed to recognise just how important some of the UK's most spectacular gardens are.
President of the Historic Houses Association, Richard Compton, said: I am delighted that Caerhays Castle has won the prestigious Garden of the Year Award for 2016. The Castle has been owned and lived in by the Williams family for many generations and there has always been a strong tradition of collecting rare species of plants. The beautiful gardens and their striking views are enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year and continue to thrive under the direction of the current owners and their team. I hope this national recognition means many more people will visit this special place.”
