Grade I gardens featuring intimate garden rooms, formal lawns and an extensive arboretum

One of our latest additions in Wales, Dyffryn Gardens are an exceptional example of Edwardian garden design, covering more than 55 acres featuring a stunning collection of intimate garden rooms, formal lawns and seasonal bedding. There is also a statuary collection, and an arboretum featuring trees from all over the world.

Within the gardens, Dyffryn House, a grand Victorian mansion overlooks the key aspects of the gardens. Significant parts of the ground and first floors have been restored to their Victorian splendour and are now open to the public.

Designed by eminent landscape architect Thomas Mawson, the gardens are the early 20th-century vision of industrialist John Cory and his son Reginald.
