During our weekend exploring north Wales, we had the great pleasure of visiting this amazing garden, lovingly nurtured over many years by the Aberconway family, who along with their loyal head gardeners Charles and Martin Puddle, have created over the last two centuries probably the finest garden in Wales. The garden is situated above the River Conwy and looks across the mountains of Snowdonia.
The garden is in two parts, with the upper part round the hall comprising the terrace gardens, as well as informal lawns shaded by trees. The lower part, known as the Dell, is formed by the valley of the River Hirathlyn, a tributary of the River Conwy and contains the Pinetum and Wild Garden. We found the variety of plants and the layout of the garden absolutely stunning, with everything beautifully looked after. The canal terrace with water lillies at either end is particularly stunning and the Bodnant Rhododendrons are famous. This is a garden we really recommend anybody visiting the area takes the time to see. Truly memorable!
