Aberglasney was made famous by the BBC television series "A Garden Lost in Time" which followed its restoration. Today it is quite simply one of Wales' finest gardens. A renowned plantsman's paradise with a unique Elizabethan cloister garden at its heart, Aberglasney offers the opportunity to explore more than 10 acres of ancient gardens as well as the award winning Ninfarium: a special indoor garden filled with exotic plants from around the world.

The gardens and the fully restored ground floor of Aberglasney's grade II* listed mansion offer a stunning venue for exhibitions and events.

Aberglasney Gardens, the highly regarded tearooms, our shop and plant sales area are OPEN EVERY DAY (except Christmas Day.)The gardens are largely wheelchair friendly, (wheelchairs can be pre-booked.)

We visited the house and gardens for the Christmas fair and we were definitely glad we did- there were so many stalls there selling all manner of locally produced goods at really quite reasonable prices. The gardens themselves were beautifully kept and still had plenty to look at,even at this time of year. The produce market was also amazing I... More

Went to visit the Winter Fayre. The car park staff were helpful and I did only have to pay for myself as my career went free. The disabled toilets are right as you go in, so if you need to go again it's a climb up the hill. The marquee's were well thought about with nice wooden floors and nicely... More

If you want a wonderful day out Aberglasney has it all with ample car parking. Beautiful walks with wonderful gardens and a restaurant that serves top quality food at reasonable prices. If its gifts you want there is a shop and area that sells plants.

We visited the gardens in August. It was a great day out. We probably prefered these gardens to the National Botanical gardens as the setting here is more historical. The facilities on site are excellent but were very busy at lunch time.

Lovely day out. Spent about 4hrs here with 2 visits to the tea room terrace by the lake. Lots of interesting plants and trees and a wonderful indoor tropical garden. Friendly and helpful staff. We'll worth the money.

I thought that as we visited so late in the season, (on 1st October), this garden might be looking a bit tired and past it, but actually it was a riot of colour, with interesting colour combinations, and loads of different planting spaces, pond, woodland, walled garden, bog, etc. Particularly loved the walled garden with a good mix of visually...

Having loved the television programme about the restoration of these gardens many years ago, it was good to be in the area and able to visit. The cafe was excellent with a varied and interesting menu choices. The garden was interesting but the colour palette was of similar tones and not as colourful as it had been as shown on... More
