BRONAIRTH Hall is a 17th century farm house with a bijou cottage garden.

In a wonderful setting with stunning views across open countryside, this garden is packed with unique and quirky features.

Hanging baskets and containers of every shape and size are filled with colourful plants; two small ponds, a summerhouse and perennial filled beds complete the picture.

The garden is open from 1.30pm until 5pm on Sunday, July 21; admission is £4 for adults, children free. Broniarth Hall is at Pentrebeirdd, Guilsfield SY21 9DW.

Also open on Sunday 21 July is The Old Coach House at Dolocorsllwyn, Aberangell, SY21 9AB.

With a backdrop of the Dyfi River and surrounding hills, this cottage style garden has evolved over the years to provide a haven for birds and pollinating insects.

Gravel and grass paths take you round beds planted with shrubs, perennial flowers and grasses, fruit and vegetables to a little pond. Hens reside in the original stables which date back to 1860 and new in this enclosed space are beehives and a polytunnel.

Secluded seating areas allow the visitor to relax and take time to enjoy different aspect of the garden. The garden is open from 11am until 5pm, admission is £3 for adults, children free.

We regret that Pen Pentre at Aberangell is no longer opening on July 21 and apologise for any disappointment.

Some Powys gardens also open by arrangement providing visitors with an exclusive opportunity to explore wonderful gardens set in stunning locations, all you need to do is contact the owner and arrange a time to suit you.

Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors the National Garden Scheme is donating £3 million to Nursing and Health Charities in 2019. Would you like to help raise even more funds in 2020?
