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.)

Aberglasney is a delightful destination which will not disappoint, although not suitable for young children or teenagers, unless they happen to be gardener s! There is always something to look at no matter what the season, the planting is superb, the hard landscaping beautiful and timeless, while at the same time giving a real feel for Aberglasney in years gone...

I was here for a Wedding. The grounds are simply wonderful. Not good for heels (a lot of cobbles) but cant imagine that many visitors are for weddings! Theres a café for food/drinks-not well signposted but feels part of the fun of exploring the grounds. Thought the price was ok/as expected. Service a little slow but wasnt in a hurry... More

Well worth a visit. Easy access around the site with lots of variety - woodland, cloisters, formal and informal gardens. Excellent cafe overlooking the sunken garden.

The gardens at Aberglasney are spectacular! Rescued from almost oblivion, and with new life breathed in by an inspired garden designer, they are a feast for the senses. With different sections featuring different types of plants and varied layouts, the colour combinations are vibrant and the scents, particularly those of the roses and lilies, are amazing. Add to this the... More

One of the best gardens I have visited in recent years with a great use of colour combinations and varied planting. Well maintained and easy access to all parts. An excellent cafe .

If you haven't been here and you love gardens then you must go. It's so pretty. We have been here a few times now and are never disappointed. There's lots to see and lots of different style of planting to enjoy. We love the area by the stream which has colourful flowers in. The woodland walk is really pretty too... More

Friendly staff and stunning gardens. Even a 4 and 5 year old had a wonderful fun filled after exploring all the different gardens and playing. The cafe was excellent quality and so friendly. The only disappointment was not being able to go through the yew tunnel.

We visited as part of a group tour based in Tenby and it was a delightful morning with lunch in the cafe. The house had a craft exhibition on the ground floor, there is a shop and an excellent plant section. The Ninafarium is wonderful - don't miss it. The gardens are still be restored and the planting was delightful.... More

Visited here as part of Wales trip, very worthwhile, approach road is rather narrow and care must be taken. Car park is reasonable size and close to entrance. House had a craft fair with an interesting array of goods for sale. Gardens are varied and very interesting, gravel paths provide relatively easy access, although stone steps must be used in...
