Gregynog’s Gardens & Walks

par Béatrice Desoudin - 6 janvier 2014

- Gregynog Hall is surrounded by 750 acres of grounds containing many different landscapes including Grade 1 listed formal gardens. The Gardener’s Chronicle of 1912 described these as ‘highly artistic and in complete harmony with the natural surroundings’ CADW added ‘one of the most important parks and gardens in Powys, dating from at least 1500s.

- Early concrete fountains and bridges are surrounded by a mass of Rhododendrons and Azaleas. A magnificent clipped yew hedge and herbaceous borders create a spectacular backdrop to the Hall.

- Gregynog Hall gardens promise to be a blaze of colour this spring as 20,000 newly planted bulbs and 400 roses come into bloom at various points, including the recesses of the famous yew hedge.

- The wildlife interpretation panels, which we have installed with support from the Countryside Council Wales, enables visitors to understand the importance of the natural environment within Gregynog.
