At over 55 acres it’s amongst the most beautiful gardens in Wales. Mainly designed and created by Thomas Mawson, a leading landscape architect of the time, between 1906 and 1912, for Reginald Cory, a notable horticulturalist with a particular interest in newly introduced plants from eastern Asia .One of the most enchanting features of the gardens is a series of intimate outdoor rooms.
