Two new gardens are open this weekend under the National Gardens Scheme.

Open both Saturday and Sunday, Moel-y-Gwelltyn-Ucha is a south facing terraced cottage garden at 900ft on a steep hillside between Llansilin and Llanrheaedr.

Bring your walking shoes, there is a 0.4-mile walk along a track from the parking area to the garden; but you will be rewarded with fabulous view towards Rodney’s Pillar and Long Mountain.

The garden is colourful, floriferous and teeming with birds, insects and other wildlife.

Moel-y-Gwelltyn-Ucha (SY10 7QX) is 2.3 miles west of Llansilin on the B4580; it is open from 1.30pm until 5.30pm on August 3 and 4 and admission is £4 for adults, children free.

County Times:

If you missed visiting Caebardd in June, you have another chance to enjoy this meandering garden with established trees and shrubs and so much more!

Take a 10-minute walk to the top of the farm to enjoy magnificent views of Long Mountain, the Shropshire plains, Cadair Berwen and Allt y Main.

Caerbardd at Guilsfield (SY21 9DJ) is open from 2pm until 5.30pm on Sunday, August 4, admission is £4 for adults, children free.

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 are donating £3 million to nursing and health charities in 2019. Would you like to help raise even more funds in 2020?
