About the garden
Dyffryn Gardens is an exceptional example of Edwardian garden design, covering more than 22ha (55a), they feature a stunning collection of intimate garden rooms including a rose garden, Pompeian garden, paved court, reflecting pool and several ponds and pools.
The enormous great lawn is bordered by seasonal bedding and a croquet lawn, kept to international competition standards. Two large, fully operational kitchen gardens provide a bountiful harvest of fruit and vegetables that supply the on-site cafe. There is also a large glasshouse featuring a tropical orchid house, cacti house and vinery. The arboretum spans 9ha (22a) and contains one of the best woody collections in the whole of the National Trust, with some specimens dating back to the 1880s.
Designed by eminent landscape architect Thomas Mawson in 1906, the gardens are the early 20th-century vision of coal magnate John Cory and his son Reginald. Within the gardens, Dyffryn house, a grand Victorian mansion overlooks the key aspects of the gardens and parts of the ground and first floors have been restored and are semi-furnished.
