A garden of secret delights
With stunning views and shady corners, the gardens at Plas Newydd are a delightful blend of intimacy and grandeur.
From the Italianate terraces to the Australasian arboretum, we have some of the most intriguing plant collections in the British Isles.
There are lots of hidden sights around every corner in the gardens at Plas Newydd.
We don't want you to miss any of them so we've put together a list of our favourite spots for you.
Get walking and enjoy some fresh air on a sunny winter's day.
There are great walks around Plas Newydd and our nearby land, taking in mountain views and the varied wildlife on the Strait.
Our wildflower meadow started life as a rugby pitch but is now home to a huge variety of plant, insect and bird life.
Recently awarded 'Coronation Meadow' status, it's a must-see in the gardens.
