Gregynog is surrounded by 750 acres of grounds including Grade 1 listed formal gardens, described by CADW as ‘one of the most important parks and gardens in Powys, dating from at least 1500’ Early concrete fountains and bridges are surrounded by a mass of Rhododendrons and Azaleas.
A magnificent clipped yew hedge and herbaceous borders create a spectacular backdrop to the Hall. Natural beech woodlands rise above ‘The Dingle’ and the water gardens of ‘The Dell’ display fantastic specimens of long established water marginals. Ancient Oaks form the Great Wood, designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, whilst magnificent Cedar, Cypress and Copper Beech challenge those found in any Arboretum.
The Estate now a national nature reserve, attracts a diversity of bird life and there is a network of colour coded woodland walks, which weave their way through the Estate and give tantalising views of the Montgomeryshire countryside.
