Aberglasney Gardens

Aberglasney is one of Wales’ finest gardens which your family can enjoy exploring, with more than 10 acres of magnificent gardens.

Most of Aberglasney’s Gardens areas are planted for year round interest and here is what you can enjoy: -

  • The North Lawn and Yew Tunnel
  • This unique Ninfarium garden with sub-tropical and exotic plants.
  • Gatehouse
  • Cloister Garden considered to be Aberglasney’s “most extraordinary and legendary feature”. The garden is bounded by a three-sided arcaded walkway made of solid stone.
  • Bishop Rudd’s Walk, particularly beautiful in spring and early summer.
  • Asiatic Garden which boasts a collection of plants that originate from various parts of Asia including China, Japan, Tibet and Nepal.
  • The Alpinum Garden
  • Upper Walled Garden, the eminent garden designer and historian Penelope Hobhouse is responsible for its new layout.
  • Lower Walled Garden / Kitchen Garden, this garden is one of the most functional at Aberglasney and is filled with fruit and vegetables as well as a large variety of cut flowers in summer.
  • The Pool Garden, this pool would have originally been used for breeding or stocking fish and then later for ornamental purposes.
  • Stream Garden, a meadow surrounding a quaint little stream which offers a contrasting garden experience to Aberglasney’s more formal areas.
  • Pigeon House Wood a secluded area of deciduous trees.
  • Jubilee Woodland is one of the newest additions to the gardens at Aberglasney completed in 2012.
  • The Sunken Garden, an imaginative garden with a water feature created by William Pye.
  • The Aberglasney’s grade II listed mansion, the centre of the mansion is now is covered by a glass roof and is home to the ‘Ninfarium’, Aberglasney’s award winning sub-tropical indoor garden, where plants grow amongst the ruinous remains. The rest of the ground floor has been fully restored and is used for art & craft exhibitions, wedding ceremonies and as a meeting venue.
