The Gardens at Llysdinam lie in the heart of Mid Wales backed by the Cambrian mountains and looking out over the Wye valley and the village of Newbridge-on-Wye.

Evolving from the 1850’s with a walled kitchen garden and beautifully planted grounds surrounding Llysdinam Hall, it has been in continuous use by the same family for 150 years. The gardens are now run by the Llysdinam Trust who are working to maintain its historical importance whilst developing it further as a garden.

The 20 acre garden is romantic and naturalistic in style and includes a Walled Kitchen Garden with extensive Greenhouses, mixed Herbaceous Borders, a Shrubbery, Bog Garden, Woodland walks and newly restored Lakeside planting. The main influence on the gardens as they are today was Lady Delia Venables Llewelyn who gardened here from the 1950’s to 2005. She was still gardening at 96 and her love for the garden can be seen in the many choice and unusual trees and shrubs she planted here.

Our Gardens

We have a variety of gardens on the grounds and their is plenty to see.

The Walled Kitchen

The Kitchen Garden covers approximately 1 acre and was built according to a classic Victorian plan.


The greenhouses range from cold and heated vegetation and fruit.

Mixed Herbaceous Borders

Backed by a yew hedge dating from 1902 the herbaceous borders provide colour all year round.

The Shrubbery

Created in a classic Victorian style, this area is currently being re­developed.

The Bog Garden

(known as the Rockery) Before 1950 this area was a Rockery and the name has stuck.

Woodland Walks

A shelter belt of 150 year old beech encircle the back of the gardens known as“Garden Wood”.
