Aberglasney was made famous by the BBC television series “A Garden Lost in Time” which followed its restoration. Today it is quite simply one of Wales’ finest gardens. A renowned plantsman’s paradise with a unique Elizabethan cloister garden at its heart, Aberglasney offers the opportunity to explore more than 10 acres of magnificent gardens which along with the fully restored ground floor of Aberglasney’s grade II* listed mansion offer a stunning venue for weddings, exhibitions and events.

Gardens, lakes, woodland and Great Glass House provide an inspiring day out for all garden enthusiasts.


Laugharne is a 10 minute drive away, with its splendid 15th century castle (pictured here), cobbled streets and of course home to the poet Dylan Thomas. Dylan Thomas's house overlooks the Taf Esturary where there are glorious walks with magnificent views. It is truly a magical place!!
