Aberglasney

There are many features to explore in this extraordinary 10 acre garden.

The most remarkable is The Cloister Garden. The garden is bounded by a three-sided arcaded walkway made of stone – the only known surviving structure of its kind left in the UK

The Yew Tunnel is thought to have been planted by the Dyer Family in the 18th century and is a glorious fusion of thick tree trunks.

The Kitchen Garden is filled with fruit and vegetables as well as a large variety of cut flowers during the summer.

Inside the house is the Ninfarium. This unique garden was completed in 2005 and houses many sub-tropical and exotic plants. The glass atrium is built above the ruinous central rooms of the mansion.

Other features to look out for are the Rose Garden, the Stream Garden, the Alpinum, the Asiastic Garden, the Sunken Garden with its water feature by William Pye and the Upper Walled Garden designed by Penelope Hobhouse.

And don’t miss the Woodland Gardens.

The gardens are open throughout the year – for opening times visit Aberglasney website
