About the garden

A garden transformed. Brought back from ruins and meticulously restored, the 10 acres of Aberglasney are now among the finest Welsh botanical gardens and a plantsman’s paradise.

Aberglasney gardens were made famous by the BBC series ‘A Garden Lost in Time’, which followed the story of their spectacular regeneration after decades of neglect. The Elizabethan walled gardens - recreated from a sea of undergrowth - are atmospheric all year round. The Kitchen Garden comes alive in summer with fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. And the shaded pathways of the Jubilee Woodland and 200-year-old yew tunnel make a pleasing contrast to the more formal areas.

Stop for lunch at Aberglasney’s Tearoom and you’ll enjoy ingredients that have travelled metres, not miles, from the Kitchen Gardens. Browse botanically inspired gifts, local gourmet treats and Aberglasney’s plants in the shop. Art exhibitions take place through the year on the ground floor of Aberglasney’s mansion – also restored to its former glory.

Lovely gardens with different sections and aspects surrounded by lovely countryside. Not huge but you can take a nice leisurely stroll round and have a bite to eat at the cafe by the pond, which is lovely outside on a nice day, and a look in the gift shop at the end. Nice to see at different times of the year. Worth a visit.

Just beautiful, what a magical setting. Lovely gardens and wooded walks with nice views. Good access to garden paths. Great tearooms with a nice all-day menu and plenty of seating. House partly open for access to (Ninfarium) indoor garden. Also a local art exhibition during our visit.

The best garden I have ever visited! Well done trustees and volunteers! Many different spaces from pure ornamental to formal beds, productive spaces and informal woodland walk. Absolutely entranced by the planting, viewpoints and to cap it all really good food and drink served in the cafe by the lake. I note that there is accommodation and not surprised that it's booked up a year in advance.

We were not planning to come here today but so pleased we did. There's a lot to see in this garden with a nice combination of woodland and herbaceous planting. When we visited much of the herbaceous plants had died back but it was still good to see the bones of the garden. There's a wonderful tropical house which is full of some really interesting and different plants. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming making for a really enjoyable visit.

Stone walled gardens, a beautiful walk around the grounds and a lovely medical property maintaining much of its fascinating history. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area. Beautiful flowers and plants.
