Aberglasney House & Gardens
Aberglasney is one of Wales' finest gardens, and at its heart lies a fully restored Elizabethan Cloister Garden that is the only surviving example of its kind in the UK today. Beyond this, visitors can explore 10 acres of over 20 different garden styles from formal to woodland, right through to exotic and modern, including the award winning Ninfarium: a sub-tropical indoor garden filled with rare and unusual plants from around the world. The ground floor of Aberglasney's grade II listed mansion has been fully restored, is open to the public, and offers a stunning venue for exhibitions and events. The tearooms can be found in an idyllic spot by the Pool Garden serving a variety of homemade cakes and meals using fresh produce from Aberglasney's Kitchen Garden and other local suppliers. There is also a gift shop and plant sales area selling plants hand selected by the Head Gardener with green-fingered visitors in mind.
There are two 5* holiday cottages that sleep up to 4 people available within Aberglasney's walls. Guests can access the gardens from the doorstep, giving them 24 hours access and the ability to wander around the Gardens in total peace before regular visitors arrive.
Annual memberships are available and provide the freedom to enjoy the Gardens as often as you like. Please see website for details.
Various COVID safety procedures are in operation, but as a predominantly outdoor attraction, they make little impact on overall visitor experience.
