A garden "lost in time", in the process of restoration. The house and garden lay abandoned for over 50 years, falling slowly into ruin. One of the interesting features is a yew tunnel planted in the 18th century. A cloister garden parapet allows you to walk along the top of the walls for views over the garden below.
Hillside garden of recent vintage. Separate red, yellow, and blue gardens, bonsai, and a water garden. There is plenty of seating to enjoy the view across the valley. Best in: summer for the full effect of the colour schemes.
The garden surrounds a 19th century country house. Both formal and informal effects are evident, the informal is best seen in the walled garden and the woodland walks through the usual rhododendrons and a variety of unexpected tree species. Best viewed in: April and May.
Beautiful parkland, perhaps landscaped by Capability Brown, surrounds 17th century Newtown House. There are formal gardens near the house and woodland walks to historic Dinefwr Castle.
Educational facility for research, sustainability and conservation. The centrepiece of the garden is the Great Glasshouse - the largest single span glasshouse in the world at 328 ft (100m) long and 164 ft (50m) wide. 17,000 herbaceous plants run parallel to the wall of the 200-year-old double walled garden. A restaurant and shop are on the premises.
A woodland garden covering 5 acres as part of a working farm! Notable for its unusual trees and shrubs, but also more common varieties of azaleas and rhododendrons. A bog garden supports rare ducks, and there are terraced alpine gardens and herb gardens, plus a summer walk lined with herbaceous plants. Best viewed in: Spring.
