Springtime in the Gardens of Snowdonia and North Wales, 14th - 18th May 2018
A magical springtime tour of the beautiful gardens of Snowdonia and North Wales led by garden writer and broadcaster Tony Russell.
This is the time of year when the gardens are overflowing with
colour from flowering magnolias, camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas.
The architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, is probably best known for his creation of the 'Italianate' village of Portmeirion on the north-west coast of Wales. A fantasy landscape, visited by hundreds of thousands of people each year ...
Less well-known is Sir Clough's ancestral home and garden at Plas Brondanw. Here, long before he embarked on Portmeirion, Sir Clough created one of the finest 'Arts & Crafts' gardens in Britain.
Situated in the rolling hills of North Devon is Castle Hill, the estate of the Earl and Countess of Arran. At the heart of the estate, nestling in a broad horseshoe of low hills, is an elegant Palladian house originally built in 1730 for the 1stEarl of Fortescue, a direct ancestor of the current Earl and Countess.
Sweeping away from the house, a stunning eighteenth century Grade I Listed landscape garden and park has changed little since its creation. A series of grass terraces, statuary and close-clipped columnar Irish yews Taxus baccata ‘Fastigiata’ flow down to a tributary of the River Mole, along which are several carefully positioned lakes and cascades.
