    Our garden of about 1½ acres has been created over the 25 years that we have owned and restored our previously derelict Welsh longhouse. It is at the centre of a working smallholding 800 feet above sea level with wonderful views. The garden has several distinct areas around the stone and slate buildings, each with its own character and planting theme. It has been created to complement its setting, be productive, and act as a haven for wildlife. We have several small plant collections & we particularly like intermingled plantings and the incorporation of native plants into these schemes; we follow a mainly organic approach. Although we plant for year round interest, we now only open in Spring with hundreds of thousands of snowdrops (over 200 cultivars & unique Welsh Snowdrop Collection), crocus, cyclamen, scillas, daffodils and many other bulbs. We continually experiment so there is something new to see each year; for 2019 we have more woodland plantings and a unique Shepherds Hut to enjoy the extensive views. We have become fascinated by the diversity of garden insects that visit our garden and those in our increasingly wild flower rich meadows through which visitors can walk. There is much more information on our comprehensive website (www.thegardenimpressionists.com) plus possible ‘pop-up’ opening times. We are only open by prior arrangement as parking is limited. For groups of 10+ other days may be possible.
