We are extremely fortunate to be able to hold our 2019 AGM at Caerhays Castle, by kind permission of Charles Williams.
It is difficult not to be stunned when you visit Caerhays Castle and its 140 acre spring gardens, the home of the Williams family.
The gardens originated from the work of plant hunters in China at the start of the 20th century. Caerhays bred the very first x Williamsii camellias and is today the home of a Plant Heritage National Collection of Magnolias, containing over 600 species and named hybrids from around the world. The spring gardens have an international reputation and have been described as 'world class'.
The castle itself was designed by the famous Regency architect John Nash around 200 years ago and both the building and the two families who have lived and worked at Caerhays have played significant roles in the history of Cornwall and its former tin mining industry.
The estate is renowned for shooting, a popular wedding venue and is often used as a photography and filming location.
The CLA Cornwall AGM will take place in the restored Georgian splendour of The Vean with lunch in the Castle and a tour of the gardens with Charles Williams.
