Aberglasney was made famous by the BBC television series "A Garden Lost in Time" which followed its restoration. Today it is quite simply one of Wales' finest gardens. A renowned plantsman's paradise with a unique Elizabethan cloister garden at its heart, Aberglasney offers the opportunity to explore more than 10 acres of ancient gardens as well as the award winning Ninfarium: a special indoor garden filled with exotic plants from around the world. The gardens and the fully restored ground floor of Aberglasney's grade II* listed mansion offer a stunning venue for exhibitions and events. Aberglasney Gardens, the highly regarded tearooms, our shop and plant sales area are OPEN EVERY DAY (except Christmas Day.)The gardens are largely wheelchair friendly, (wheelchairs can be pre-booked.)

We arrived at Aberglasney Gardens at 4pm in the evening. The ladies wanted to talk us into coming the following day because the Gardens close 6pm. They were able to locate our e-tickets. We walked past the shop, and into the House. There was an artist in residence, on the way to Ninfarium. It was so warm and toasting, compared... More

Visited with two children one of whom is disabled, they both really enjoyed themselves. Managed to get my son to most of the garden. Very very pretty! Helpful and friendly staff. Had a meal in the cafe, again helpful and friendly staff, the gardeners lunch fed four of us!

A garden with so much to see and do. So many different types of gardens in one eg the Ninafarium. Walled garden, pool garden,stream garden,woodland garden, sunken garden and more... The boarders were busting with colour, beautiful selection of hydrangeas in blues,pink,purple and white. Lots of seating around the gardens so you can relax and take in the scenery. Lots... More

Aberglasney is a beautiful place. The gardens and house feel into disrepair and have been, and continue to be, lovingly restored to their former glory. The old cloisters and the large pond are tranquil and a great setting for the terrace café which serves good food. Borders are bursting with colour and in one area there is a great mix... More

This is one of the nicest gardens we have visited, with a wide selection of interesting plants in beautiful surroundings. It was exquisite and well worth a visit. Take your time, as there is a lot to see, and the excellent cafe has its own temptations.

My wife may dispute my ranking, but Aberglasney was a nice end-of-the-day/trip visit before leaving for London. Peaceful, low-trafficked, and green-green-green, it's a great specimen of old manor house gets built, forgotten about, and restored. Lovely. Nice local craftsman shopping on premises too.

What a glorious experience. The grant for the restoration of the house & gardens was money well spent. If I lived in Wales I would visit at all seasons to really appreciate all that it has to offer.
