More about Llyn Rhaeadr

The 2½ acre Hillside garden was formed from six pieces of land acquired over a period of 20yrs. Some areas were originally part of the very large estate garden of Bron-y-Graig of which the park and nature reserve in Harlech were also part. The Estate has some interesting history and in my garden there are 6 of the original stone seats, several yew trees and the remains of a water collection (ground tank) point where water was piped to a building to make ginger beer on the estate. Water is very much a feature of the garden with a small lake having been made for a collection of colourful waterfowl with 22 species, half native and half foreign. The lake contains trout and the good size fishpond boasts carp, orfe and goldfish plus some wonderful water lilies. The stream which flows through the garden falls 50ft in a series of waterfalls ending in the lake. There are good gravel and grass paths with seats including a gazebo where you can take a rest and admire the views of the garden plus Cardigan and Tremadoc bay. There are many wild and garden plants, shrubs and trees in flower throughout the year including snowdrops, daffodils, camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, bluebells and rockery plants. The garden is still being developed but some wild areas will be left for wildlife and planting will be improved over time.
