Romantically positioned on the banks of the River Severn in Mid Wales, Glansevern Hall Gardens offer over 25 stunning acres of diverse landscape and exotic planting. The spectacular estate comprises a variety of garden attractions, such as the enormous lake, a cascading Water Garden, lakeside and woodland walks, the more formal Walled Garden, the charming Folly Garden and the secluded Bird Hide, set where the River Severn meets the River Rhiew. On your visit to Glansevern you can enjoy exceptional food, courtesy of The Potting Shed Cafe, which is situated in the picturesque Georgian courtyard and which offers a stylish, atmospheric and friendly place to relax and savour delicious dishes. Furthermore, The Chic Shed Shop at the Visitor Entrance stocks a beautiful and original selection of garden-inspired gifts and homeware.

My sort of garden. Not too tidy, slightly dishevelled. Despite the very dry conditions the place had a lot of atmosphere. The stable yard was lovely, the walled garden also, and the lily pond/lake was gorgeous. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful gardens and lakeside walk. Great courtyard, lovely looking food and well priced wine by the glass. And dog friendly too.
