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.)

Aberglasney has rightly been described as one of the best gardens in Wales, and it is spectacular. It’s a series of differently styled gardens, and as you walk through them the landscape changes. Set in the Tywi Valley it makes the most of its location....More

Blooms upon blooms, even in late August, alongside lots of bees and butterflies, all sign of a healthy and diverse garden. The setting is tranquil, with multiple 'gardens' within the garden to explore. Leave enough time for a cup of tea or sandwich in the...More

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.
