A garden for all seasons

Winter is one of the best times to enjoy the views from the garden, with the crisp air giving clear views of the surrounding landscape - with views all the way from the Great Orme and Puffin island in one direction and the majestic backdrop of Snowdonia and the Carneddau to the other.

Why not take a stroll off the beaten track and visit our hide down by Afon Ogwen. Here you can take in the scenery and stroll along our boardwalk. Remember your wellies!

We're also dog friendly and welcome dogs on leads in all areas of the garden, including the Walled Garden.
