Create an itinerary including Bodnant Garden
See plant species from all over the world originally grown from cuttings that arrived at Bodnant Garden more than a century ago. The world-famous garden here--which was developed around Bodnant House starting in 1874--provides spectacular views across Snowdonia National Park. This 32 hectare (80 acre) garden is split into two parts: the upper level surrounds the house and features Italianate terraces, specimen trees, and manicured lawns, with paths that take you to the lower level. Referred to as The Dell, the lower level is home to a wooded valley, wild garden, old mill, and even an enchanting spillway waterfall into the River Hiraethlyn. Enjoy fresh, local dishes at the Pavillion Tea Room, ice cream at The Kiosk, or home-baked scones and cakes at the Magnolia Tea Room. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Bodnant Garden by using our Tal-y-Cafn trip app.

  • Second visit, this one on 9 July 2022 on a blisteringly hot day. To keep this short, everything here is very very good. Lovely formal gardens, wider riverside walks, places to sit and chill and the cafe's are very good indeed. Good food choices, prices not bad. I'd like to see part of the parking area flatter and firmer for motorcycles, so something to do in those quiet times please. Thank you for making our stay a good one.
  • Spent a few hours discovering these beautiful gardens. Lots of manicured spaces near the house but plenty more areas of woodland with waterfalls and ponds along the way. Good Pathways make it easy to get around. Then after a good walk there are a couple of cafes to enjoy a bite to eat as well as browsing a number of little shops and nice garden centre. Great place to spend an afternoon, highly recommend
