What a beautiful place to walk and take in the most excellent collection of plants in a wonderful setting. The food is good too and all freshly made. An amazing amount of work has gone in to to create something really special.

Only blind dogs i'm afraid, there are hundreds of beautiful walks around the outside of Aberglasney, the whole area is steeped in history with stunning views.
