Beautiful private gardens in a tranquil setting.

The gardens are run by the Llysdinam Charitable Trust who are working to maintain their historical importance whilst developing them further.

PLEASE NOTE: The gardens are only open to the public by appointment and we are not open on weekends except for special occasions.

The Gardens at Llysdinam lie in the heart of Mid Wales backed by the Cambrian mountains and looking out over the Wye valley and the village of Newbridge-on-Wye.

Evolving from the 1850’s with a walled kitchen garden and beautifully planted grounds surrounding Llysdinam Hall, it has been in continuous use by the same family for 150 years. The gardens are now run by the Llysdinam Trust who are working to maintain its historical importance whilst developing it further as a garden.

The 20 acre garden is romantic and naturalistic in style and includes a Walled Kitchen Garden with extensive Greenhouses, mixed Herbaceous Borders, a Shrubbery, Bog Garden, Woodland walks and newly restored Lakeside planting.

The main influence on the gardens as they are today was Lady Delia Venables Llewelyn who gardened here from the 1950’s to 2005. She was still gardening at 96 and her love for the garden can be seen in the many choice and unusual trees and shrubs she planted here.

"Llysdinam Gardens are among the loveliest in mid Wales, especially noted for a magnificent display of rhododendrons and azaleas in May."

The Gardens

There are a variety of different gardening styles within the grounds.

The Walled Kitchen

The Kitchen Garden covers roughly 1 acre and was built according to a classic Victorian plan.


The greenhouses range from cold to heated and produce a range of fruit and vegetables.

The Bog Garden

(known as the Rockery) Before 1950 this area was a Rockery and the name has stuck.

Mixed Herbaceous Borders

Backed by a yew hedge dating from 1902 the herbaceous borders give colour all year round.

The Shrubbery

Created in a classic Victorian style this area showcases lady delia’s love of hardy shrubs.

Woodland Walks & Lakes

A shelter belt of 150 year old beech encircle the back of the gardens known as “Garden Wood”.
