Details

The Gardens at Llysdinam lie in the heart of Mid Wales backed by the Cambrian mountains and looking out over the Wye valley and the village of Newbridge-on-Wye.

Llysdinam Gardens are a unique combination of Historical and Horticultural interest and can sometimes feel like a real ‘Secret garden’. They open twice a year for the NGS and selected charities and throughout the year by appointment.

A shelter belt of 150 year old beech encircle the back of the gardens known as“Garden Wood”. Paths here are strewn with ash and old pottery from the house 100 years ago. In one area a favourite horse was buried “Lady Betty 1899­-1931” and in another a memorial to Minx and Muffet (1921-1931) sits next to mementos of recent family pets.

Backed by a yew hedge dating from 1902, the herbaceous borders provide colour and interest all year round. From the displays of snowdrops in the spring to peonies, irises and asters later in the year there is always something to catch the eye.

The Kitchen Garden covers approximately 1 acre and was built according to a classic Victorian plan. It faces south and slopes gently to the yew hedge at one end, maximising the impact of the suns rays and draining cold air away from the crops. Productive beds lie in each of the 4 quadrants bisected by a path flanked with deep herbaceous borders.

COACH PARTIES
Llysdinam Gardens are also open throughout the year by appointment only. Coach parties are welcome and Llysdinam can provide light refreshments by arrangement. The Head Gardener can also be booked for guided tours of the gardens .
