a beautifully landscaped set of gardens and a really good tearoom overlooking the pond. The staff were helpful and the herb scone very, very large! An ideal place to while away an hour or so,

A day learning about how to use edible flowers in food preparation and display and the afternoon learning how to grow vegetables and fruit in that area.

Aberglasney gardens are not like any other gardens I have been to - I just couldn't stop taking pictures as it was so beautiful and astonishing! I would definitely recommend to anyone to spend quiet some time in these gardens to appreciate their full beauty. I don't think there can be more said about these gardens but go and visit... More

We stopped here on our way home (to Monmouthshire from our holiday in Pembrokeshire) The gardens were beautiful. It was interesting to hear the history & watch the information DVD to show what happened. We had a cup of tea to break up our journey & enjoyed a slice of homemade cake from the café. The weather was a bit... More

Aberglasney is unique as far as my experience goes, especially the cloister garden. The gardens are lovely, with beautiful colourful flowers and the history of the place is fascinating, it's so fortunate that the place has been so beautifully restored, as truly a treasure would have been lost. There is a real natural beauty and romance about the gardens. It... More

We visited again yesterday and enjoyed a lovely sunny day. There is so much to see especially if you like plants. It is easy on the feet and extremely easy on the eyes. Peace and tranquility, nice cafe. Final verdict - we became members.

We spent a lovely few hours here today admiring the beautiful gardens, lots of secret areas to explore, wonderful views of wrap around countryside. The Mansion house is also very interesting, it housed a craft show today. There is also a café whose outside tables overlook the lake. A shop and plant sales are worth a look, situated at the...

Found this garden enjoyable and interesting especially with its many different parts, even at Easter there was plenty out with lots of colour. Would love to visit again in Summer.

We visited these gardens on Sunday and found them utterly delightful, we received a lovely welcome from the chap on the ticket kiosk and the people manning the craft stalls inside the house were very friendly also. The gardens were very varied with all sorts of unusual plants, when we visited the azaleas etc. were finished flowering but this didn't... More
