Bodnant Gardens is a National Trust site and is renowned for it's botanical collections and spectacular views across Snowdonia. The gardens, located in Tal y Cafn, Conwy Valley has won many awards and was created primarily by Lord Aberconway (Henry McLaren) who then gave it to The National Trust in 1949.
There are so many things to see and do in the gardens. One of the recommended sights to see is 'The Dell'. The Dell is a tranquil area cascaded by a waterfall and crammed full of plants, flowers and wildlife.
Another must see is "The Poem" a mausoleum built by Henry Davies Pochin as a last resting place for himself and his family. The poem is right in the centre of Bodnant and has undergone a full restoration. The building can be viewed by the public on the last Tuesday of each month.
Near the garden's exit is a welcoming tea room that serves tea, coffee, soft drinks and a range of cakes and puddings. The food is all prepared fresh and sourced locally.
