Gerddi Norwood Gardens, Gardens Pencader, Carmarthenshire - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Llanllwni Pencader Carmarthenshire Wales
Norwood Gardens is situated in Llanllwni in a particularly attractive part of south west Wales between Carmarthen and Lampeter. It is about 45 minutes drive from the end of the M4. The gardens extend to about 3 acres and occupy a gently sloping site on the south side of the Teifi valley. The gardens at Norwood cover an area of approximately 3 acres. Work on creating it began late in 2002 and it will be several years before the design will be fully implemented. Of course, it can be argued that a garden is never finished and no doubt that will be as true of Norwood as it is of any other garden. The name Norwood Gardens, in the plural, is a clue to the design. The backbone of the site is the Long Walk, a wide path over 180 metres long which extends almost the full length of the garden. To either side are set 7 gardens of various sizes, each with its own theme. They are separated from each other by borders and areas of mixed planting ranging from annual bedding plants to drifts of substantial shrubs. The whole area is generously planted with trees. The gardens are designed with many seating areas to encourage our visitors to stop, sit down and relax. Every seat will have a unique view, sometimes intimate, sometimes expansive, but always, we hope, interesting. There are many larger gardens which can be visited but we hope your stay at Norwood will be amongst the longest and most pleasurable.
