Cariad

Cariad is one of the largest gardens that opens for the event, it is located above the village with amazing views down to Shere and across to the North Downs.  This beautifully landscaped garden has lots of visual interest with vibrant, thoughtful planting and beautiful structures and statues (including four by Angie Doy of Surrey Sculpture Society) to create focal points.
