I'd visited Aberglasney twice in the early 2000s. WOW it has been wonderfully developed and is a stunning place. My partner and I have visited many gardens but this blew us away- especially the Ninfarium. Absolutely worth a visit.

We visited the gardens on Tuesday 30 September. Initially we were given a very interesting talk about the history of the house and gardens. All the good things reported on Trip Advisor are true.
