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

I think this is a tremendous garden. This is not a park it is a real garden. The cloister garden and walled gardens give a vision of gardens from the 1600s. That is very special. The upper walled garden is one of the most beautiful formal gardens I have ever seen. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. There is also... More

Aberglasney is a hidden gem, a home from home for me. The gardens are gorgeous and you can spend an entire day enjoying its beauty. The staff are friendly, the shop and plant sales are full of temptation and Maryellens tearooms serve wonderful food, from a cake and pot of tea to hot food, all lovingly prepared, mostly home made,...

A beautiful garden to visit, don't know why it's taken so long for me to visit . Well worth visiting. The history of the house and garden are part of the attraction as both have been completely renovated. There is a short film shown in the house showing the amazing transformation. The gardens are well maintained with a variety of... More

We have just had our first visit, I hope we will go again. We were on our way to a short break in Lampeter, so decided to stop off on route having wanted to visit Aberglasney before. We were bowled over with the layout and presentation. It was compact but absolutely beautiful. We had a lovely coffee break in the... More
