The owner takes great pride in this place and is hugely knowledgable and friendly and interesting. Stepping into the gardens it is hard to believe you are in Menai Bridge- it is almost mythical in places.

A garden to visit for inspiration, even in winter on a damp day. Beautifully restored with a most romantic atmosphere. Interesting planting, particularly of the lower woodland part. Select plant sales and a very pleasant cafe.
