With one of the last surviving C18th gardens, Erddig’s large walled garden is one of the most important in Britain; also in the Llangollen area – Chirk Castle, the Garden House and Bodrhyddan.
In Mid Wales, impressive Powis Castle just south of Welshpool offers world famous gardens, influenced by French and Italian style; nearby Glansevern Hall and Dingle Garden. Whimble Garden and Hergest Croft Garden are both in the Presteigne area plus Llanover and Penpergwm in Monmouthshire. Bwlch y Geuffordd is an extraordinary garden that has been created at Bronant near Aberystwyth. Llanerchaeron is a small estate in the beautiful Aeron Valley near New Quay and other gardens in West Wales include Cae Hir, Glanawen and Bro Meigan.
In the Carmarthen area, inspirational Aberglasney deserves it reputation as one of Britain's most remarkable gardens and The National Botanic Garden of Wales provides a unique experience for visitors.
