It was the first time I'd used a small mobility scooter the top area and roses where easy to navigate. I noticed larger scooters could get around quite well onto the lower terraces. You have to think of the drainage of the battery. So relaxing such lovely colours around you. It's so worth the visit. Our daughter and son in law visiting from Alberta Canada loved it all. We sat and relaxed on one of the benches after a nice picnic and waited for them to come back.

A lovely and well-tended garden of which the NT can be proud. The hard-working volunteers were busy tending to the Autumnal tidying of paths and lawns, keeping them in supreme order, the nuts and bolts of garden maintenance. We visited during mid-October and many of the trees were still in Summer green with a sprinkle of golden areas. Plenty of flowers were still in bloom, but the roses were past their best and being deadheaded as required. Wheelchair/disabled access was well marked on the free map, with longer walks laid out for the more fit and active visitor on a partly sloping site. Excellent afternoon visit on a sunny but chilly day.

An amazing place to visit been in winter and summer. Grounds are well kept, walks and views are wonderful, really well looked after. Some places are a bit tricky if your disabled, but if a lovely day great place for a picnic. Shops and restaurants on site and in summer a small cafe open in the lower gardens. We had a ice-cream from cafe was best we have had. Also they do weddings as was one on when we visited.

One of the loveliest National Trust gardens I've visited. Azaleas, Spring flowers & magnolias were out when we visited. Beautiful terraces, ponds, buildings with lots of interesting walks. Plenty of seats to just sit & relax. Not as big as I expected & queues at cafe in the gardens. Nice craft centre with reasonably priced individual work. Garden centre with all usual things to see & buy.

Bodnant Garden was the surprise of our holiday! We loved the scale of the grounds and the wide variety of plants, from the Italian style pond to the terraced gardens. We were very lucky to see the Laburnum walk in full flower, as we did not know about it in advance. Dog-friendly all over the grounds, including the shops and cafes. Highly recommended to visit at any time of the year!
