Aberglasney was made famous by the BBC television series "A Garden Lost in Time" which followed its restoration. Today it is quite simply one of Wales' finest gardens. A renowned plantsman's paradise with a unique Elizabethan cloister garden at its heart, Aberglasney offers the opportunity to explore more than 10 acres of ancient gardens as well as the award winning Ninfarium: a special indoor garden filled with exotic plants from around the world. The gardens and the fully restored ground floor of Aberglasney's grade II* listed mansion offer a stunning venue for exhibitions and events. Aberglasney Gardens, the highly regarded tearooms, our shop and plant sales area are OPEN EVERY DAY (except Christmas Day.)The gardens are largely wheelchair friendly, (wheelchairs can be pre-booked.)

We had a nice walk around the gardens during the Christmas Fair, although the £8.50 admission was expensive considering there isn't much maintenance to do in comparison to National Trust properties.

Absolute chaos. No disabled parking so a 5 minute walk from the car to the entrance. No concessions. Exorbitant prices and to cap it all the turkey was very dry and very chewy and overheard others saying the same. I will never return!

Only blind dogs i'm afraid, there are hundreds of beautiful walks around the outside of Aberglasney, the whole area is steeped in history with stunning views.
