About the garden

Cae Hir is a unique Welsh garden with a storied Dutch history - a true family garden of unassuming beauty. Trailing up four acres of hillside at the base of the stunning Cambrian Mountains, this Welsh garden’s bold mixing of perennials and wildflowers results in swathes of beautiful and natural colour, punctuated by moments of formality.

At Cae Hir, you can discover both formal and evocative, naturalistic planting - it’s a garden that’s not just for plant lovers but also a wonderful destination for aspiring garden design enthusiasts. Children love the acres of spaces to run and hide, while their grown-ups can sit and reflect, or meander through the garden and regain their energy.

After experiencing the delights of this Welsh garden, relax in the quirky ‘Tearoom in the Shed’ and enjoy delicious homebaked food, or browse the interesting plants available in Cae Hir’s own nursery.

We felt this was one of the best privately owned gardens we have visited (and we do visit a lot!). Beautifully kept, and the creator's vision is clearly visible with lots of information, especially about the many specimen trees. The family history of its creation is a bonus. Good selection of plants for sale at decent prices. We recommend taking time viewing so as not to miss anything. It's a garden for gardeners.

I was hoping to find an interesting garden, with some uniqueness about it. What I found was that, but bigger and more varied (and a lot steeper under foot) than I expected. Really friendly staff, a nice pot of tea, and even the chance to buy some interesting plants if you like. The story behind how the place was made is as fascinating as it is endearing. My top recommendation of places to go in the area.

Nice little gardens with a little tea room. It is not a big center or massive gardens these are privately owned gardens open to the public. Decent sized car park and the gardens themselves were well kept but not spectacular.

Beautiful and relaxing garden - we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Had a cream tea with home made scones, delicious jam and clotted cream. The majority of the garden is quite steeply sloping so difficult for anyone with mobility issues but well worth the effort if you can manage it. Free entry for RHS members. Recommended!
