The gardens at Plas Brondanw are a fine example of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis's talent for creative landscape design. The main features date from the early part of the 20th century before he began Portmeirion, but work continued on and off until the 1960s.

Sir Clough Williams-Ellis was given Plas Brondanw by his father in 1902. The house and garden had long been abandoned by the family and subdivided into allotments and tenements. Only the big trees remained of its earlier grandeur. Over the next seventy years, Sir Clough created a unique and characteristic garden landscape. His main objective in a landscape was to provide a series of dramatic and romantic prospects. Inspired by the renaissance gardens of Italy, the design of the Plas gardens is strongly architectural, relying on stone wall, topiary and avenues of trees to form the vistas which lead the eye to distant mountain tops.
