  • Unfortunately not everything has flourished as a result of the unusually high number Schness here in recent times yet, what we had hoped for. Who knows but with gardens and some imagination, can be sure how wonderful it will look in a few weeks. The Café is recommended

  • A relatively small garden, but with a varitety of formal and informal areas. The woodland area is reminiscent of the Rococo Gardens in Painswoick, Gloucestershire. Much in prospect for the Spring and ...  more »

  • Our daughter and partner recently married in the grounds at Aberglasney. We felt that the whole day was a great success and Aberglasney looked spectacular in the sunshine. So many of the guests were captivated by the venue and enjoyed the different elements of the gardens. We also appreciated the fantastic facilities and our florists were especially grateful for the use of the workshop, which was ideal for the preparation of all the flowers. The setting for the marquee next to the woodland area was perfect and the view looking up towards the house was a joy. On a practical note, the site's proximity to the workshop and the rear car park was ideal and the marquee company and the caterers were very pleased with the ease of access and the generous space for loading and unloading. Ellen, the marketing and communications officer, and all the staff were friendly and helpful and did everything they could to make the preparations go smoothly. The gardeners and volunteers work very hard to maintain the house and gardens - the whole site is immaculate and there is a wonderful surprise around every corner. It really is a magical place and a wonderful venue for a wedding.
  • Always a beautiful place to spend the day, i visit often as I have a season ticket the plus factor is the great little cafe on site with all home made cakes superb. Highly recommend.
  • We had a light lunch. We love the gardens. Unfortunately the pea and mint soup lacked seasoning, and was very bland. Also, the garlic sauce on the mushrooms was slate grey in colour, which was a bit off putting. Coffee was good.
  • Aberglasney Gardens are a quiet haven incorporating some formal gardens with small valleys filled with surprises. Ideal to sit and watch on the many hidden seating areas. The smell from the Candy Floss trees in the Autumn is amazing and from such a small leaf! There is a pleasant tea rooms and it is possible to see what they have done to the house.
  • Well kept gardens with some interesting plants. Garden is set in a great setting. Cafe with interesting menu and friendly staff
