Yew Dell is a very beautiful property. The little chapel is very charming. The vast amount of plant varieties was amazing.

We were in town and looking for some holiday events. The only bad thing is that it was pouring rain. The train display was cute and my daughter really loved the scavenger hunt. The castle is a beautiful building. Seeing Santa and sipping hot chocolate was a great way to spend a dreary afternoon. The staff was friendly and very... More

Visited Yew Dell to walk the grounds, see the model train exhibit and see Santa! We enjoyed hot chocolate and a wonderful relaxed atmosphere as we enjoyed the seasonal music.

Each time we have appreciated the diversity of plants and been exposed to many we have never seen before. This has inspired us to try some new plants & to utilize others in new and interesting ways in... More

Absolutely beautiful. What a great place to visit and see what types of plants can be grown in the Kentucky climate and soils. Laid back and relaxed environment allows you to explore the gardens at your own pace.

I visited Yew Dell for a wedding. The grounds were gorgeous and the wedding setting was absolutely perfect along with the reception which was held in the barn. It is very peaceful here.

Immaculate grounds, breathtaking views, beautiful place. Great for photography as well. Many places to sit and relax and enjoy. Our 6 year old son even loved it! Will definitely be going back.

Yew Dell Gardens is one of Louisville's--Crestwood's best kept secrets. This is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. If you love flowers, trees, and plants this is the place for you. Russian sage, many varieties of peonies, hostas, roses, etc. You can amble through this beautiful garden at your own pace. There is a shop where you can... More

I like to take photos as a hobby. One of my favorite subjects are hummingbirds. They have always interested me...it's amazing how social, agile, and fast these tiny birds are! Yew Dell Gardens has a large population of hummingbirds due to the flowers. It is truly unique to see the concentration of birds in one area. There are lots of... More
