Caerhays is home to the x williamsii camellia hybrids but is perhaps best known for its huge, Asiatic magnolias which are usually in their prime in March and April. Caerhays hosts the Plant Heritage National Collection of Magnolias with over 500 different varieties on show. There are also over 80 UK record sized trees in the gardens as measured by height and girth.
Opposite the Castle entrance is Porthluney cove, a private beach which is open to the public.
Still some late daffodils to be seen.
