We arrived at Aberglasney Gardens after numerous recommendations from the locals - and we weren't disappointed. A truly beautiful set of gardens with a real sense of being in a feeling of enchantment. Wonderful landscapes with a number of different gardens to visit and walk round. Staff were very helpful and wanting to speak to us "it's so lovely to... More

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,

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

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...
