Orlando Rock, Christie’s UK Chairman, commented: “It is with great pleasure that we congratulate Caerhays Castle Gardens on winning the respected Garden of the Year Award, awarded by the HHA and sponsored by Christie's. Presenting a unique opportunity to recognise some of the country’s most outstanding gardens, the award is a testament to the passion and care of the Williams family and their team in their efforts to nurture these historically and botanically significant gardens.”
Richard Compton, President of the Historic Houses Association, commented: “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.”
