Certificate of Excellence winners include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a superior customer experience.

The 19th-century Caerhays Castle, designed by John Nash, is one of the oldest castles in the country. It is situated in Caerhays Woodland Gardens and surrounded by magnolias, camellias, rhododendrons, narcissus and primroses. Caerhays Estate is home to a National Magnolia Collection and is also a centre for botanic research.

The Grade II Listed Woodland Gardens span over 120 acres. Many of the Chinese plants that can be found in the Caerhays collection can be traced back to the work of the great plant hunters Ernest Wilson and George Forrest, whose work including Forrest’s 1911 expedition, was partly funded by J C Williams of Caerhays.  

"Winning this Certificate of Excellence is a great thrill for all of us at Caerhays and we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor," said Lucinda Rimmington, the estate's marketing manager.

 "2015 has been a busy year for us here. Not only have we had Tim Burton and his crew filming here but we’ve begun a series of renovations to the estate including the restoration of the rhododendron beds in Old Park Wood and John Nash’s archway on the cliff. It’s satisfying to know our visitors appreciate this."
