Dyffryn Gardens Reviews
We did not visit this property at the best of times - as little is flowering in the garden in a cold March and we had read that the house was unfurnished - so we visited with low expectations - which ... more »
Although at this time of year there is little in flower, the National Trust has done an excellent job of engaging the visitor through its use of information blackboards to explain what they are trying... more »
This wonderful calming place has plenty of walks for all ages, some slightly steeper than others but mostly flat. The serenity of these gardens makes you feel so relaxed while taking in the sounds of ... more »
I was a little disappointed with our visit. We went for the Easter Egg hunt and it cost £30 for my wife, daughter and I. I would not say that we received value for money. The house needs LOTS of work done, so I can understand why they are charging the prices they are, but we had basically explored the house within about 20 minutes. Everything was hands on, which was great, but there was not a lot of it and they need to spend a lot more time and effort to get this place up to scratch. The gardens will, I am sure, be nice in the late spring and summer, but at the time of the visit, it was pretty bleak. The new children's play area is a nice playground of logs for climbing on etc which is fun and they had a "shelter area" where you could build your own shelter with the branches and logs left for that purpose - this was good fun.
A hidden treasure! The grade 1 gardens are incredible and are brilliant for exploring. The new wooden playground and eco friendly area is tremendous! The house itself is wonderful, full of period features. The volunteer guides offer informative detail and add to the overall experience. Well worth a visit.
Lovely themed gardens and woods with a large collection of mature specimen trees. National Trust have taken it over and are currently doing a lot of work in the grounds after years of neglect. I visit monthly to see the progress and photograph the flower gardens through the year. Cafe is good with a variety of hot and cold food available. Lots of activities for the kids with a couple of play areas. Cafe is outside along with one play area so if you are not a national Trust member this is free to enter.
This place is wonderful for adults and kids. There is usually something going on to keep the children entertained. There is a nice restaurant by the entrance and a coffee shop by the terrace. The house is beautiful with various exhibits to wonder around. The volunteers are full of information about the history of the house and gardens. There are two pianos which the public are allowed to play on. I like to visit early in the year whilst the gardens are being prepaired and then again in summer, when it is in full bloom. The glasshouse and kitchen gardens are fantastic too. There is a nice gift shop and a really nice selection of quality plants for sale. Well worth a visit anytime of the year.
Fabulous NT property easily accessible from M4 and A48. The Trust are refurbishing this lovely grade2 Victoria country house and its lovelier grade 1 gardens which are the real star. Good teashops ( yes 2) and loads to keep the whole family entertained for the day
