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.

This place really is a hidden gem. Super walk through woodland well-labelled . About a mile but not too strenuous- worth the effort. Beautifully neat walled garden - amazing hydrangeas. Classy tea room. Well worth the entry charge- free car park.

Tucked away gardens down a long private drive, its about 1.5 miles walk and has different routes graded by difficulty (hardest is still fairly easy). Gardens are absolutely beautiful and some nice pools and waterfalls for photos. Good value at £7.50 entranceMore
