Fantastic gardens of the national trust, previously we had only visited the tea rooms as dogs not allowed, but now allowed in winter, great visit, and Gizmo loved it.

I hadn't been to Bodnant Gardens for well over 30 years, but my wife and I were keen to visit whilst on holiday as we'd seen a BBC documentary series that covered a year at Bodnant and the gardens looked really special. Well we weren't disappointed, even on a visit on the depths of winter. We live close to Stourhead,... More

Visited with my mother who enjoys gardens. The layout of these gardens are beautiful whatever the season. Easy to walk around and enjoy the plants and trees. Lovely tea room. Easy to park. Enjoyable when ever you visit.

I went here with a friend and our children (three girls age 6 to 9) because we were staying in Abergele and we're both NT members. It really blew me away. It is beautiful. This place is a feast for the senses and has little treats round every corner. I genuinely wish I lived round the corner so I could... More

An immense amount of work has been carried out the past few years both replanting and extending the grounds, the various seasons are well catered for after many visits it never fails to impress.

Easy to find as well signposted. Plenty of car parking. Very costly entrance price NT have to look at the pricing as there are many that would like to visit but are priced out. Exceptional gardens well maintained with all the plants, shrubs and trees marked well. Possible to visit many times of the year to witness the effect of... More

As a national trust member we decided to visit on a crisp November morning. The staff were very friendly and informative in entry. All the ponds were frozen which the children thoroughly enjoyed cracking.... We walked to the tearoom first where there was an open log fire outside....the children toasted marshmallows for free.... Again staff were lovely. We had hot... More
