Caerau Gardens, at over 1000ft, the highest gardens open to the public in Wales. There are stunning views over the Berwyn Range. Whilst this might be an interesting fact to use when promoting the garden, it does raise the issue that in such a challenging environment is it possible to establish a garden which has real horticultural merit? Well the simple answer is yes.
What Toby and Stephanie Hickish have managed to achieve since they first moved to the property in 1994 is quite remarkable. Back then Caerau Uchaf was a derelict house and the garden no more than a field. Whilst planning permission was sought to renovate and restore the house, Toby and Stephanie started work on creating a garden. Private gardens that are designed to be explored. Keen gardeners are welcome and children are catered for in the woods with old fashioned play around a wooden fort and zip wire.
The cafe is a particular passion of the owners with delicious home cooked meals and cakes.
