Dyffryn Gardens

On the outskirts of Cardiff lie the stunning Edwardian gardens of Duffryn House created by John and Reginald Cory.

With over 55 acres to explore, discover the arboretum, the beautiful garden rooms, the working kitchen gardens and an exotic glass house.

The garden was laid out in a series of intimate rooms at the beginning of the 20th century to a design by the landscape designer, Thomas Mawson.

Look out for the south-west facing terrace with its impressive herbaceous border.

The Pompeiian Garden was inspired by Reginald Cory’s trip to Italy.

To the south of the earlier kitchen garden, are a series of rooms with paths, walls and clipped yew hedges. Explore the Lavender Walk, Bathing Pool Garden, Theatre Garden and the Rose Garden.

Reginald Cory loved dahlias and he did much to increase their popularity
