The gardens and grounds of Bodrhyddan Hall are some of the most captivating in Wales. With manicured lawns and parterre and beautifully informal woodland of the pleasance, the gardens, along with the house have undergone plenty of redevelopment over the years.
Visitors are treated to a variety of veteran trees, blooming begonias and colourful herbaceous perennials all maintained by the wonderful staff and family themselves.
Originally laid out by William Andrew Nesfield, whose other notable accomplishments include Kew Gardens and Green Park in London, the gardens retain a true Victorian style.
From snowdrops, to daffodils and blue bells and then rhododendrons and water lilies in the summer months, visitors are treated to a wonderful selection of seasonal displays. With a huge array of birdlife, amphibians and other animals, Bodrhyddan is a wonderful experience for nature lovers.
