Attraction details
Owner description: Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens have undergone a spectacular transformation and are being restored to their former glory. First laid out in 1804 in the 'picturesque' style of Humphrey Repton, the famous Victorian landscape designer, the gardens had become derelict by 1996. There are 10 acres of gardens, included a 2 acre Walled Garden, fantastic valley gardens packed with unusual and interesting plants, flowering shrubs and trees; river and waterfalls. Home made cakes are served in the traditional Tea Room. Visitor Centre describing the history and restoration of the gardens. In 2017 open 12noon-5pm on Weds/Thurs/Suns in April; Tues/Weds/Thurs/Suns May-Sep; Weds/Thurs/Suns in October. Pre-booked private group tours by appointment.

We visited on our way back from Beaumaris. These are such beautifully restored gardens. It was very easy to spend a few hours enjoying the serenity as there are plenty of places to sit. A café is also on site for those who require it with ample seating.

Really enjoyed the walk around these gardens. The gardens were beautiful and we were given a very helpful guide to find our way round. Great parking. Only criticism was that I found the cafe to be pricey.

A hidden gem well worth a visit but be aware of steep paths. Beautiful manicured gardens at the top, then a woodland garden with a waterfall and river at the bottom.

Well laid out and easy to follow routes around the garden. Fantastic collection of plants within an amazingly compact space. The walled garden is very good but dependant on season. The rest of the garden is on a steep slope with steps so can be difficult for anyone with limited mobility, but you can get a reduced rate if you can only manage the walled garden. Cafe is excellent serving lots of locally sourced food. Very pleasant outdoor seating area if the weather is fine

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the variety of plants in the gardens. The valley gardens are steep in places and not suitable for visitors with limited mobility which is why we offer a reduced rate and we try to ensure there is something of interest throughout the season. We are very glad you found the tearoom excellent.
