About the garden

Those who like to stray off the beaten track will delight in the meandering pathways of this RHS Partner Garden, a jewel in the undulating crown of the Welsh valleys.

Since 1996, Christina Shand has been sensitively embellishing this ancient landscape with an array of varied planting, including a fernery, orchard and statement courtyard full of potted tropical plants. In one corner a dazzling stainless steel Obelisk rises out of a bog garden. Elsewhere woodland unfolds onto an ornamental grass field bristling in the breeze. There’s much to take in yet all the elements hang harmoniously together. And nowhere is this more apparent than from the Magic Garden, where visitors can see how the six-acre site blends seamlessly into the Pembrokeshire countryside.

Feeling inspired? Pick up some plants for your pad in the shop or brush up on your botanical knowledge in the Dyffryn Fernant Garden Library.

Stayed in the garden cottage for one week and enjoyed the 6 acre garden, even at the end of September. They welcome dogs, Christina and David friendly and helpful.

What an absolute gem of a garden. We've been coming to Pembrokeshire at least twice a year for many years, but this was our first visit to the gardens. It's magnificent, each section is laid out, succulents, ferns, meadow, etc, but it doesn't feel overly-designed, it feels organic and natural. The whole gardens are spread over a large area, so they are perfect for a half-day visit if you like a slow wander. Dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on the lead. We'll definitely be coming here again.

Inspirational garden with a strong creative intelligence behind it. Lovely planting combinations. Designed so the different areas of the garden flow into each other and blend into the landscape. Narrow paths encourage exploration. Lots of places to sit. Very peaceful. Highly recommend. Honesty box for entrance fee so take cash.
