About
Garden of four acres closely planted with many rare trees,shrubs and perennials open to the public for the National Garden Scheme, a charity which benefits mainly cancer and nursing charities. We are open most days, but it is advisable to check our phone message to avoid disappointment. Llwyngarreg continues to develop further, delighting plant lovers with its many rarities incl species Primulas, many bamboos with Roscoeas, Hedychiums and Salvias extending the season through to riotous autumn colour. Trees and rhododendrons have been underplanted with perennials. The sunken garden for tender/exotic gems and gravel terraces with formal pool continues to mature. Springs form a series of linked ponds across the main garden, providing colourful bog gardens.

Amazing Garden created by this couple over the last 20 years quite an achievement. Well worth a visit

The whole experience was great and it was so good even my non gardening husband loved it! I’ve never seen such a beautiful glade of naturalised Snakes-head. Very impressive sculpture everywhere. A joyful garden!

What a treasure trove! We spent an afternoon in autumn looking around this beautiful garden. Just when you think you’ve seen it all - there’s something else just around the corner or hidden in the water. What a delight! We will be going back there for sure - particularly when the Rhododendrons are in flower in spring! We were made to feel very welcome and were lucky enough to buy some plants too. Can’t wait to go back.

Can't believe we have never visited here and only live 10 miles away! Such an interesting array of plants,shrubs and trees.Paths thoughtfully laid so surprises around every bend. Water features and hidden seating areas. Beautiful, colourful and teeming with wildlife. We were a little pressed for time so were unable to spend as long as we would have liked. Actually- what we would have liked is to have sat in the main lawn with a good book and a glass of wine, it was like an oasis of calm.We settled instead for tea and cake ( which was delicious).
Thank you both- you have inspired us to do something with our own 4 acres- you never know...in 20 years time ....!
P.S. Thank you for the Czar butter beans,looking forward to a big crop next year!

We had a lovely visit to the garden today. So much to see and enjoy. A cuppa was very appreciated with coffee and walnut cake. Hope to return in the spring to see the rhododendrons and spring flowers. I should have more energy by then!🤞 Thanks for the plants and seeds too.

We loved the interesting plants, the quirky design and Paul and Liz's enthusiasm, friendliness and knowledge. The garden has grown over a number of years and had a number of plants we didn't recognise but Paul knew all the names and what environment suited them. There was tea and cake available and plants for sale, so we brought some home. The location is beautiful, once we'd found it- don't rely on the satnav which took us into Whitland- we really enjoyed it. The £5 entrance fee goes to the NGS charity so it's a worthwhile cause and a good afternoon out.

I'd say if you were a garden enthusiast visiting west wales this is THE garden you should make sure you visit, and was definitely the highlight of our trip.

From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Paul O’Neill, it was just a fantastic experience. Despite the fact that the garden is relatively small (4 acres) we spent over three hours there. It is absolutely packed with interesting plants and planting combinations, about which Paul and Liz were happy to answer questions; they are also able to provide fascinating insights into the 20 year process of creating this garden about whch they are so obviously passionate.

As well as the plants, the garden is full of other quirky bits and pieces, such as seats made from living willow, mobiles and wind-chimes, and pieces of artwork; we especially liked the tile and stone mosaic sitting area near the stream created by Liz. Although this is a really attractive garden if you're a plant enthusiast, it’s so well-designed that it will appeal to a wide range of people (there are some lovely touches for children too).

The garden is open for charity, and while it's "open on most days" it does not have fixed opening hours. Therefore *it's essential to get in touch with Paul and Liz before visiting using the information on the website*.

The only problem with this garden is that it sets such a high standard that most others will seem rather prosaic in comparison!

Searched for a garden we hadn’t been to and came up with this one, what a great decision. Can’t describe how good it is in words, you need to go and see it for yourself, so make the effort it’s well worth it. There’s not many gardens you get a guided tour round, Paul pointed out several things for us to see then let us get on with it. The thought and planning they have put into it is shown by what they have there now and is a credit to them.
Will look forward to returning at a different time of year.
