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.

I'm not a gardener but my wife is. But I can say that I enjoyed the visit here as whilst there was a lot to see the site is not too large. It was a blaze of colour with a vast variety of plants and flowers. Equally interesting was the history of the site and the various owners who had each tried to make a success of the original estate and later the gardens.

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.

Gorgeous garden in a beautiful location. It's perfect for a half day visit, not too large or formal. Lots of different areas to wander around, Ninfarium is interesting (in the main building, door in right hand corner) and lovely tea rooms with indoor & outdoor seating.

Ace. A wonderfully relaxing and tranquil place. Beautiful show of colour in the formal gardens and the woodland walk is pretty good too Staff are very friendly and helpful. The shop is now open and well worth a visit. Also a good supply of quality plants on sale at shop entrance. Currently good and drinks are only available on a takeaway basis with a decent choice available at reasonable prices. Tables and benches available outdoors. Highly recommend a visit, a truly beautiful setting. Please remember to bin or take home litter, the place is immaculate and it would be a shame to spoil it 🙂
