Established in 1994 by Toby and Stephanie Hickish, Caerau Gardens is a wonderful private garden set in the Welsh hills with breathtaking views of the nearby Berwyn mountains. Situated just a few minutes drive from the popular tourist town of Bala, Caerau Gardens is a great offering for all the family, with its seamless blend of choice planting, garden features, farmhouse cafe and childrens play area in the woodland.
In a previous life Toby and Stephanie Hickish ran a successful landscape and garden design business, with show gardens at the prestigious RHS annual events at Tatton Park and Hampton Court. Their passion for great design shines throughout the spaces of Caerau Gardens, from the formal lavender borders to the rustic water feature found in the wildlife & bog garden. All the different areas of the garden flow beautifully well into each other and it really is an exciting visit, discovering new colours and textures around every corner!
