Cae Hir Garden

Cae Hir Garden, near Lampeter

‘A Welsh Garden with a Dutch History’, Cae Hir is the creation of Dutchman Wil Akkermans who started off with 3 fields of rough farmland in 1983.

 Cae Hir Garden has matured and developed into one of Britain’s most highly acclaimed private gardens, having been chosen by the RHS as one of their select Partner Gardens.
Cae Hir has become synonymous with the skill of blending the wild with the cultivated, of mass planting of the ordinary to achieve extraordinary results, and of  thinking outside the box to manage the impossible – namely to create and keep on top of 6 acres of garden as ‘a one-man job’. Visitors to Cae Hir sing its praises loudly: 
"Absolutely stunning! The most interesting and beautiful garden we have visited."
"Eat your heart out Monty Don."
"Truly magnificent…I have not seen a garden quite like it anywhere."
"Delicious cream tea, a wonderfully relaxing garden, nice people – what more could you ask of a Sunday afternoon!"
