Details

A historic garden under restoration, situated between Menai Bridge and Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey.

In 1996, the present owner bought the 200 acre Plas Cadnant Estate and work began on the restoration of the historic garden and grounds. Since then, large parts of the gardens have undergone a spectacular transformation and have been restored to their former glory.

Described as one of North Wales best kept secrets is the hidden world of Plas Cadnant Gardens, situated at the side of the Menai Strait, hidden from view near to Menai Bridge on the Isle of Anglesey.

Former owners of Plas Cadnant were related to the Tremayne family of Heligan House, now famous for its Lost Gardens.

A new garden is being created on an historic site, becoming a plantsman's paradise. Now considered amongst the liveliest twenty gardens of Wales, and featured in a new book 'The Finest Gardens of Wales' by Tony Russell'. Also featured in 'Discovering Welsh Gardens' written by Stephen Anderton and photographed by Charles Hawes.

Three different gardens have been discovered, including an unusual walled garden with curving walls and pool, a secret valley garden with three waterfalls and river, and an upper woodland garden with stone outcrops and the remains of a 19c. folly.

There is still much work to be done and we hope you will visit us in person or use the website to keep informed of our ongoing progress.

Notes

Visitor Centre, Tea Room and courtyard areas are level with a tarmac/slate surface. The Hidden Gardens sit in a valley following the contours of the land. The Walled Garden has some slopes but is accessible for most people with limited mobility. The valley gardens have steep slopes and gravel paths and are unsuitable for wheelchairs or motorised scooters. We are happy to advise about the suitability of different parts of the gardens.
