We are sorry you had difficulty with the walker and do acknowledge that a lot of the garden is inaccessible for many of disabled people. However we do offer anyone to bring their vehicle right up into the garden thereby avoiding so much gravel to...More

In two minds about this garden. There are some beautiful plants, but the overall impression was that the garden has got out of control with weeds everywhere. Personally I don't think it was worth the £7 entrance fee.

A magical and restful place. The gardeners’ art and nature blend to make this a garden to remember. We loved Waun Fach (the rush pasture), the mossy trees, and streams. We enjoyed a chance to sit and explore the many interesting books in the library....More

We visited this garden last week the entrance fee was £7 per person which after going round we found the fee to be extremely high they should ask for contribution on leaving. There was very little to attract any attention the first area you see...More

Wow! Thank you, it is terrific when the creation of the garden here is so sympathetically appreciated.

I visited this wonderfully ramshackle gem of a garden this morning. It is a magical place, full of enchanted corners that fades gently at it's edges in to the surrounding landscape. There is a well stocked library with a help yourself to a tea with...More

Went here 23/5/18. £7 to get in. It's a nice place, but not what was expected, lots of plant life to look at but, weren't as impressed as some visitors seem to have been. We normally spend ages wandering around gardens, but we left after...More

Very personal and a long way from your traditional formal garden. Great and creative combinations of colours in the different beds. The library is a must.
