Returning for our third visit was once again aware of the peacefulness of this garden. Although not too many flowers, the hellebours and daffodils were in abundance. Everywhere was very tidy and ready for the bursting of spring. I love the ninfarium a clever idea for this area. We had lunch in the tea room and I must say it... More

We visited the gardens whilst staying locally. We were very impressed by the work being done there and the restoration work on the house is of a high standard. Despite It being late January the gardens were extremely tidy thanks to the diligent and hardworking staff and volunteers. It was perhaps not the best time to see the gardens as... More

We visited the house and gardens for the Christmas Fair, and we were definitely glad that we did - there were so many stalls there selling all manner of locally produced goods at really quite reasonable prices, there were carol singers to get us in the festive spirit and even some reindeer! The gardens themselves were beautifully kept and still... More

This is the first time I have been to the gardens and what a time to go. The gardens were beautiful, the fair was amazing. I will definitely be returning to see the gardens in the summer. Would totally recommend. My children aged 4 and 6 are used to going to the botanical gardens and both of them said they... More

Went last month while on holiday in Carmarthenshire. Lovely 'lost' estate with a restoration as part of the story. Very sensitive and green in its reconstruction, and delicious food in the cafe. October didn't have the blooms, but it was still a lovely place for a walk among the Autumn leaves, and the transformation of the old servants' quarters into... More

We were visiting Wales and came across this Garden road sIgn on the way, so with GPS help we reached the place, and alas we almost missed it as the GPS directed us to the village with the same name, which is directly opposite the other side of the road.. Good thing we finally found it, and to our pleasant... More

The Aberglasney Gardens is an incredibly beautiful garden. It is not that easy to reach, located in the midst of Wales mountain and you have to use private transport to reach there, about 45 min drive from Swansea, through narrow country roads. The gardens were very well maintained and landscaping wonderful. It is an ancient garden complex built over few... More

The house is interesting and is being renovated in stages. The ground floor has been renovated. Unlike many "stately" homes, it is light and bright and the art exhibition which was being staged during our visit was interesting. The sunken garden, and the enclosed sub-tropical garden are also worth a visit. Lots of butterflies in the garden too. The old... More
