Overview
More
Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens have undergone a spectacular transformation and are being restored to their former glory. First laid out in 1804 in the 'picturesque' style of Humphrey Repton, the famous Victorian landscape designer, the gardens had become derelict by 1996. There are 10 acres of gardens, included a 2 acre Walled Garden, fantastic valley gardens packed with unusual and interesting plants, flowering shrubs and trees; river and waterfalls. Home made cakes are served in the traditional Tea Room. Visitor Centre describing the history and restoration of the gardens. In 2017 open 12noon-5pm on Weds/Thurs/Suns in April; Tues/Weds/Thurs/Suns May-Sep; Weds/Thurs/Suns in October. Pre-booked private group tours by appointment.

The gardens are private and created fairly recently. A work of love and very impressive. The guide book was worth buying as it made you appreciate how much work went into the gardens in a comparatively short time. We enjoyed walking round, there were lots...More

Formal gardens at the start - lovely planting - and then a wonderful jungle garden dropping steeply down to the river. Recovered in the cafe with a really good cup of tea and some really good fresh lemon cake. Lovely garden to visit.

This is a beautiful garden. Very well maintained with paths marked for the less active. The tea room is a treat too. Fantastic cakes and lots of choice. Pain is and sandwiches available for lunch. Make sure you check opening times especially if travelling.
