The garden is wll worth a visit at any time. There is always something interesting to see. However, in our opinion, the experience is let down by the cafe. It is expensive, eg, £7.95 for soup. The sandwiches and cakes are also overpriced. The menu...More

Near the town of Llandeilo, which is also worth a visit, Aberglasney Gardens are a great place to visit. The gardens are beautiful, well set out and has benches throughout the grounds where you can stop, sit and take in the view. There's a café/restaurant,...More

We loved the ambience and the autumn garden this year. Good restaurant overlooking the pond. Ideal weekend with the nearby National Garden of Wales. The woodland walk was lovely and the flower beds well looked after. A really good experience.

Only blind dogs i'm afraid, there are hundreds of beautiful walks around the outside of Aberglasney, the whole area is steeped in history with stunning views.
