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.

Having read the reviews I'm not sure my wife and I visited the same garden. Tall grasses abound, which is fine if the planting scheme offsets this with colourful flowers/shrubs but unfortunately this is not the case, with the exception of a small more formalised garden are near the house. Not for me I'm afraid.

If you like a garden of Eden you will love this place. There are cascades of blooms wherever you look. A vegetable garden a library with high back chairs like something from the nineteenth century .

Doesn’t conform to formal gardens. So therefore RELAXING and QUITE. Makes a pleasant change.
