Aberglasney Gardens
Llangathen, Carmarthenshire

The beautiful county of Carmarthenshire is situated on the south coast of Wales with Swansea to the south, Powys to the east, Ceredigion to the north and Pembrokeshire to the west.

Carmarthenshire has everything to offer the domestic or overseas tourist with lush fertile countryside and a splendid coastline with long sandy beaches. Wales has a plethora of castles, historic attractions and heritage sites and Carmarthenshire is certainly no exception with Carnarthen Castle, Carreg Cennen Castle, Laugharne Castle, Dinefwr, Dryslwyn Castleall awaiting your visit.

Any trip to Carmarthenshire would not be complete without a trip to both Aberglasney Gardens and The National Botanic Garden of Wales.

The former, Aberglasney Gardens is spectacularly set in the beautiful Tywi valley of Carmarthenshire, The gardens have been an inspiration to poets since 1477. The story of Aberglasney spans many centuries, but, the house's origins are still shrouded in obscurity. An enclosed garden created within the central ruins of the mansion known as the 'Ninfarium' won the best garden design/construction project in the UK in 2006.

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is the first national botanic garden created in the new millennium and opened by HRH The Prince of Wales .

The Great Glasshouse with the largest single span glasshouse in the world is a wonder to behold and for that reason is on a shortlist for 'The Seven Wonders of Wales'. There are 150 acres of gardens including Garden Lakes, a Japanese Garden, Organic Farm, Woods of the World, Plant Sales, Apothecaries Garden, Science Centre and, quite frankly, a list far too long to mention but an absolute must upon your visit to Carmarthenshire.
