Blue Garden

Welcome to Cae Hir

A Welsh Garden with a Dutch History

One of  the best gardens to visit not just in Ceredigion, but in Wales...

...climbing up the foothills of the ancient and glorious Cambrian Mountains and only 8 miles from Cardigan Bay's stunning coastline


The  latest...

We are now closed for our daily visits. If we open for any
October Autumn Days we will advertise these in this spot and on social media - so keep your eyes peeled! October Autumn Days are pre-book only.

Are dogs allowed? 

YES! Dogs with well behaved owners are welcome in the garden! There is no entry charge for dogs. Fresh water is always available and we have a dog waste bin for your use. 

What time do you open?

We open at 10am and close at 5pm daily through the season which runs from April 1st to September 30th.

Can we visit just the tearoom or nursery?

YES! There is no obligation at all to visit the garden. Many people enjoy popping in just for a coffee and treat in beautiful surroundings or to enjoy a good browse around our plants for sale. We are also often used as somewhere to break a journey; to get some air, a bite to eat and use the loo!

What  our Visitors say...

Mountain ash

Fabulous garden, wonderful family, amazing cream tea. What more could you want on a Sunday afternoon!

Beech tree bark

What a truly magnificent garden with a lovely variety of trees and plants so beautifully landscaped. I have not seen a garden quite like it anywhere.


The most imaginative garden I have ever seen! Wonderful.

You could NOT do better, it is superb.
