Top 100 Attractions Review

Cornwall is of course the final chapter of this book and the attractions within this chapter are the final jewels in the crown of what is to be one of the book shops best tourist attractions book, if not the only one! Caerhays Estate is one of those hidden jewels that a crown possesses and once discovered, shines brighter than a summers evening. I visited Caerhays early in the summer of 2013 after someone in a Truro restaurant highly recommended it. As you can imagine, writing these books allows me to visit an awful lot of castles and stately homes, but Caerhays completely blew the wind out of my sails, I couldn't believe how such an attraction existed here in the UK and I didn't know about it, such is the mystique of Cornwall I guess. I will say though, because this attraction is so special, Caerhays is only open around four months a year. But whilst you are on their website checking out which months they are, why not investigate their amazing holiday accommodation, Caerhays is in the same country but a different world!

Attraction

Caerhays EstateCaerhays Estate

It is difficult not to be inspired when you visit Caerhays Castle and Gardens. The natural beauty, the architectural surprises, the inescapable sense of history and the range of activities and facilities that the estate offer, all set the scene for a wonderful day of discovery. Caerhays has an international reputation for its camellias and rhododendrons and is home to a National Magnolia Collection. You can visit the castle and gardens, walk in the grounds and visit the stunning beaches which make up the estate. This is a renowned shooting estate and is often used for filming, as a photographic location and for corporate hospitality. Enjoy the tranquility, beauty and history of the whole estate for a day, or for longer if you choose to stay awhile in the restored Georgian splendour of The Vean or in one of the estate's many cottages.
