About the garden

Owned by
Jim Stribling

Set in the beautiful Tywi valley of Carmarthenshire, Aberglasney is one of Wales' finest gardens. At the heart of this historic site is a fully restored Elizabethan Cloister Garden, the only example that survives in the UK today. Beyond this, visitors will find more than 20 different garden styles from formal to exotic, right through to natural woodlands and meadows. 

Great care and thought have gone into developing a garden for all seasons. Late winter brings sheets of snowdrops, crocus and many other winter-flowering bulbs, accompanied by extensive collections and displays of cyclamens, hellebores and witch hazel, making January to March far more exciting than many would think. 

Spring is a symphony of colour and interest and the stars are the magnolias and tulips, with displays that expand every year. Wales' national flower is also celebrated with a collection of more than 450 varieties of daffodils, large drifts provide flowers from November to June. 

Mid-and-late spring brings the usual delights with additional specialities like the iris collection, horse chestnut collection and huge drifts of Camassia and Allium in succession. Midsummer sees an extensive collection of rare and heritage roses, innovative bedding displays, and large numbers of tender perennials and annuals. There are also specific features to enjoy such as the rose arbour, Malus arbour, yew tunnel, Kitchen Garden and many other seasonal highlights. 

Aberglasney offers an excellent tearoom serving local, homemade dishes including produce from Aberglasney’s Kitchen Garden. The gardens welcome group bookings and offer a programme of arts and crafts exhibitions and events throughout the year. Aberglasney is a must-visit.
