Bodnant Garden, Tal-y-Cafn

(4.8/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
See plant species from all over the world originally grown from cuttings that arrived at Bodnant Garden more than a century ago. The world-famous garden here--which was developed around Bodnant House starting in 1874--provides spectacular views across Snowdonia National Park. This 32 hectare (80 acre) garden is split into two parts: the upper level surrounds the house and features Italianate terraces, specimen trees, and manicured lawns, with paths that take you to the lower level. Referred to as The Dell, the lower level is home to a wooded valley, wild garden, old mill, and even an enchanting spillway waterfall into the River Hiraethlyn. Enjoy fresh, local dishes at the Pavillion Tea Room, ice cream at The Kiosk, or home-baked scones and cakes at the Magnolia Tea Room. Add Bodnant Garden and other attractions to your Tal-y-Cafn trip itinerary using our Tal-y-Cafn vacation trip planner.

  • A true gem! Sufficient time bring because the terrain is very extensive. In the area of the country seat many flowers and landscaped gardens, away to the further it is a real English-style garden. Always stop for a moment and everything to leave work. With a little imagination you can imagine how here lustwandelten at times of Jane Austen's ladies and Lords. The system is maintained by the national trust and the Lady at the cash register us pointed out kindly that we reduced membership or would even free admission. Tip: before the trip on the side of the national trust look, if not possibly a membership would be worth.
