Notice: We are restoring three of the garden rooms over the beginning of the summer. This means that the Pompeian Garden and Paved Court will be closed this week while repairs are made to the stonework. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Magnificent Edwardian gardens flowing from grand vistas to intimate spaces overlooked by a large mansion

Dyffryn Gardens are an exceptional example of Edwardian garden design. Covering more than 55 acres they feature a stunning collection of intimate garden rooms including a rose garden, Pompeian garden and several ponds.

The enormous great lawn is bordered by seasonal bedding and a croquet lawn. There is also a large glasshouse, statuary collection, and arboretum featuring trees from all over the world.

Designed by eminent landscape architect Thomas Mawson in 1906, the gardens are the early 20th-century vision of coal magnate John Cory and his son Reginald.

Within the gardens, Dyffryn House, a grand Victorian mansion overlooks the key aspects of the gardens. Parts of the ground and first floors have been restored and are unfurnished.
