Manor and Rose garden

Kaagjärve Manor (formerly Kawershof) was first mentioned in 1541. in 1515. It was first mentioned in 1541, before the demesne was nationalised in 1918. In 1918, the manor complex of Kaagjärve Mäemõisa and Kaagjärve Alamõisa was ruled by the noble Von Grote Baltic-German family.

The current owners have restored the neo-Renaissance-influenced elegance of the history-ravaged manor house, and installed a rare slate roof that can be admired from the manor’s tower, which will be officially opened in 2022.

Through close contact with the descendants of the Von Grote family, the present-day manor family has acquired valuable material about the manor’s past, which they have gathered together with photographs and paintings in the Kaagjärve Manor Museum on the second floor of the main building.

Kaagjärve Manor today is introduced by the manor priest Maritta here.

Rose garden

Historically, the south side of the building was the main entrance to the manor house and in front of it was a magnificent roundabout for horse-drawn vehicles.

Two lime avenues that have survived to this day started from the ring road, with one road running between them towards Valga and the other towards Lüllemäe.

Unfortunately, the circular road has not been preserved, but as a symbol of this, in 2019 the manor family built a large circular rose garden in the former location of the road.

The construction of the rose garden, the front garden and the kitchen garden in 2019-2022. In 2019 and 20192020, Valga County schoolchildren have been good and indispensable helpers, spending two weeks every summer in the Kaagjärve Manor, gaining new work experience in the student club.

Under the guidance of a professional landscaper and landscaper, and with the help of hard-working young people, Kaagjärve Manor’s garden is becoming more and more beautiful every year.
