Beautiful and lots of interesting places to explore...manicured and formal as well as wilder areas. You could spend quite a bit of time there on a summers day with picnic etc. Lots of great photo opportunities.

We are a couple who love to visit gardens and we were not disappointed with Bodnant .Tha gardens were lovely the variety of plants amazing and so much colour I bought my first angels fishing rods here many years ago and plenty were on display again so I purchased some other colours whilst here

The garden are huge, and when we visited in summer are very impressive. It's quite a walk down to the old mill and along the stream and back up.

There are two cafes at the top, and a very small kiosk at the bottom - it would've been nice to have another cafe somewhere in the garden, so eat before you head into the garden!

Wish I had visited this attraction years ago, it is the most stunning place the website and leaflets just do not do it justice, There are acres and acres of stunning gardens and features, you will need a whole day really to appreciate this place, its is user friendly for wheelchairs National trust have done their best in this area although there are quite a few slopes not accesible but the map provided show where to go
we visited in middle July and the hydrangas and lilly pond were just stunning appearing everywhere, this is top of the list for many more visits in the future, the staff were so friendly and helpful, lots of free wheelchairs available

Wow! We enjoyed everything at the Bodnant Gardens. We took so many photos of the beautiful flowers, water features and trees. Walking the many diverse trails was peaceful and calming which appreciating the planning that went into this special place. So many varieties of trees and flowers from all over the world. The terraces, waterfall, old mill area were great. One of the docents, Angela, was particularly helpful. She spoke with us for quite a while sharing her love of nature and these gardens making our visit even more lovely. We could have stayed all day. Thank you for this gem.
