You cannot separate the woods from the more formal gardens, as they drift engagingly from one to the other. Nor can you isolate them from the house, which is a splendid Victorian mansion left by the owner to his fellow citizens. The house has become the County Offices, being enlarged in a most reasonable way in the original style - would that all extensions to municipal buildings were done so delicately. The formal gardens are in the style of about 1910 and none the worse for that - bedding plants in their season - indeed the entire length of the Cob, the embankment from Conwy to Llandudno Junction, was ornamented with bedding plants until the local kids ruined them by riding bikes over them on purpose. Bodlondeb Woods are fun - birds of all kind - nearby up the river is Benarth with its heronry and occasion visiting osprey. You have to consider Bodlondeb in its context - it is a fine Victorian/Edwardian garden with a splendid river and the finest walled town in Britain attached.
