We visited Aberglasney House and Gardens on Monday July 31 with friends from Carmarthen. We were fortunate to have a break in the rather strong showers that day and enjoyed our experience immensely. We watched the brief film of the history of the house during one downpour as well as visiting the indoor garden just off the visitor center.

We spent a good two hours walking the grounds, Very pleasant!

Aberglassney Gardens was a lucky find for our trip to the UK. They are 500 year old gardens and the cloister garden and rear parapet wall were hidden for centuries, being restored only 16 years ago. Tucked away off the main road, this is a fantastic garden which we ambled around for about 3 hours, discovering all the different garden areas and out buildings like the stables and the pig styes. They've done an amazing job developing the gardens and there is plenty to see in the different borders. They were cleaning the waterlily pool while we were there which must be glorious when they're in flower. The kitchen garden was very special - they supply fruit & vegetables for the cafe which was a great place for lunch. The Georgian Mansion is slowly being restored but they've concentrated on the gardens first. The shop is not huge but has a really good selection of plants & bulbs for sale as well as various well-priced gifts. I'm so glad I googled "gardens of interest" in the area around our hotel or we'd never have discovered this beautiful garden. They run various exhibitions in the mansion - the current one is a pottery exhibition which was also interesting. There was excellent parking and there are toilets available by the entrance to the mansion.

I decided I would treat my husband to a day out for his birthday. He decided he would like to go to Aberglassney as it has been quite a long time since we last visited. The gardens have matured know since our last visit and it was lovely to see both butterflies and bees enjoying the flowers. The scent of the roses and lilies was fabulous. If you visit this lovely garden make sure you take advantage of the tea rooms, we both had Aberglassney ploughmans lunch. Including half a scotch egg, ham, cheese pickled onions, cornishons, salad and chutney. If you drink coffee it was lovely. Would highly recommend a visit and I know we won't be leaving so long before our next visit

What a surprise, not well known but well worth a visit. Gardens are great and well laid out, while the house is interesting with an indoor garden. All well presented

17th Century Gardens with a special sense of place. Aviary, walled garden and fish pond are all arranged in an aesthetic way and can be seen from a raised stone walkway. The house, originally destroyed by fire, is under reconstruction and there are plans for a future conference centre. Teas and light lunches are available next to the large fish pond as well as a good book shop and a small garden plants retail area.
