Bryn Gwern Gardens

Bryn Gwern Gardens, Dolgellau, Wales.


This enchanting garden is only open to the public two or three days a year.  The house with two acres of land was bought by a mid-wife nearly thirty years ago, at that time the land had been covered in trees and bracken and she decided she was going to change it. Gradually she cleared the land and built this beautiful garden in the hills overlooking Dolgellau with views to Cader Idris. The garden was designed around natural features including streams and ponds and is a haven for wildlife too.

I was staying in Dolgellau, Wales, for a week to photograph disused mines in the area. Sunday 15th May was a beautiful evening and having spent the day underground, I was pleased to find this enchanting garden just round the corner from the cottage we were staying in.  It was late in the evening and the garden was technically closed, but we were welcomed with open arms and told to enjoy the garden!

The money raised from opening the garden to the public a few days a years is helping to raise funds for cancer charities and a local home for elderly residents.

The garden is next open Sunday 24 July 2016 (10am - 5pm). Admission £3.50, children free. Cream teas available.
