Today we visit a fascinating and unusual private garden at Llanover, created in the eighteenth century by the ancestor of the current owners.
The Rhyd – y- meirch stream tumbles through the gently sloping 15 acre garden creating ponds, channels, rills and cascades. The sound and movement of water can be enjoyed everywhere in this special garden. Numerous herbaceous borders on either side of the sheltered round garden, along the terrace , drive and pond beds are full of complimentary colours, textures and shapes providing beauty and interest throughout the seasons.
Seven generations of the family have carefully placed unusual trees and shrubs to give memorable views.
We will be welcomed by the current owner and given a brief history and then a guided tour by the Head Gardener. We will then have time to enjoy free time in the garden as well as morning coffee/tea and home made cakes.
We then head to Monmouth with free time to explore the shops, cafes museums or even the hidden Nelson Garden to continue the theme of the day. Tucked away in the town centre, Nelson Garden is accessible by walking through an atmospheric 18th Century tunnel and has recently been completely restored to its 19th century heyday.
