Bodnant Gardens

It's getting to be quite a habit at the moment going to National Trust properties. I think it's because I've recently noticed how much it is costing me to be members and I need to get some value from it. We've been members since the girls were small so it must be nearly twenty years.

So Bodnant Gardens is in North Wales a few miles South of Conway and LLandudno. The Hall is not open to the public and has been owned by one family for over 125 years. The gardens are magnificent and there are two separate areas, the formal gardens near the house and the wild gardens down in the "Dell".

Within the formal gardens is the Laburnum Arch, flower beds, lawns, big trees, two lilly ponds and the white arched folly. In the dell is a stream, an old mill, lots of very big trees, a few bridges, lots of paths and a waterfall. I would highly recommend a visit and I hope you like the photos I have put on Flickr. Click the photo to take you to the rest of the pictures.
