This beautiful garden is one of the most popular in North Wales. Situated not far from Conwy, on the North Wales coast, this hillside garden allows spectacular views over towards the Welsh mountains. The garden is divided into two quite distinct parts, one much more formally planted than the other. Near to the Hall, a number of beautifully planted and ordered gardens and terraces are interlinked, with planting downhill towards ‘The Dell’ decidedly more wild and informal.
A particular favourite of the gardeners at Bodnant has been the mass planting of many varieties of Rhododendron, some unique to Bodnant which reflect the opinion of the 2nd Lord Aberconway. He believed that these plants, which grew so successfully at Bodnant, should be cultivated en masse, and when in bloom, these flowers form a sea of colour throughout Bodnant.
The gardens at Bodnant have much to offer. Perfect for games of hide and seek, picnics, and simply admiring the landscaping, the gardens are popular with people of all ages. For the more horticulturally minded, the Bodnant Garden Centre offers a vast array of different plants and trees.
