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.

Ever since I was little I have stayed in the cottages here and walked around it's beautiful gardens. The cafes are very nice and the cottages are very homely and spacious. I've always loved coming here and highly recommend it for big families or even if its just yourself.

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 🙂

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.
