Details

Caerynwch, one of North Wales’ most enigmatic stately homes is again opening the gates to its grounds over the Easter and May Bank Holiday weekends and inviting visitors to take part in a series of cultural and creative activities designed to showcase the magnificent 15 acre gardens.

The gardens, which were established in the 1800 and feature a collection of special rhododendrons brought back from China in the 1900’s by Mary Richards, a renowned botanist, are slowly being restored by her grandson Andrew Richards and his wife Hilary.
