Overview

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.)

You can't fail to be impressed by the house and gardens here. This is a gem of a place tucked away in the countryside near Carmarthen. At just around £8 to get in and you are free to roam all day amongst the manicured gardens...More

A Members' gathering, celebrating many of the outstanding improvements, especially the Piggeries. Excellent food, wonderful surroundings, live music and chatty and informative talks/Q&A sessions with Head Gardener Joseph. Definitely one of the best I have ever attended!

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.
