An Ancient House with a Victorian Facade. Situated far from any city yet at the heart of Welsh History, Art & Politics. Once a landed estate, now a conference centre, wedding venue, Grade I listed garden and events venue. Famed for centuries for its hospitality and still offering accommodation today.

The garden is informal and diverse. It sits in the middle of 750 of land with several waymarked walks. It is stunning in summer with a magnificent collection of rhododendrons and azaleas and also very beautiful in autumn as the trees colour up.

On a walk around the garden I would recommend The Dell area – which in the Davies sisters day used to have a gardening team of 6 to look after that area. It has some interesting planting and also has the Montgomeryshire Beekeepers Training apiary. This leads to a circular walk around the lily pond where visitors will find a summerhouse at the back of the pond where Margaret Davies used to paint.

The borders around the Hall are planted with herbaceous beds and the fountains at the front of the Hall have different annual planting every year.
A good view of the iconic golden yew hedge can be got from the concrete bridge at the front of the Hall.

This property now offers free access for Friends (gardens only).
