Romantically positioned on the banks of the River Severn with gardens that extend to more than 25 acres.

Romantically positioned on the banks of the River Severn in Mid Wales, Glansevern Hall Gardens offer over 25 stunning acres of diverse landscape and exotic planting. The spectacular estate comprises a variety of garden attractions, such as the enormous lake, a cascading Water Garden, lakeside and woodland walks, the more formal Walled Garden, the charming Folly Garden and the secluded Bird Hide, set where the River Severn meets the River Rhiew. On your visit to Glansevern you can enjoy exceptional food, courtesy of The Potting Shed Café, which is situated in the picturesque Georgian courtyard and which offers a stylish, atmospheric and friendly place to relax and savour delicious dishes. Furthermore, The Chic Shed Shop at the Visitor Entrance stocks a beautiful and original selection of garden-inspired gifts, plants and flowers.

Glansevern Hall Gardens overlooks the Kerry Hills and is close to Welshpool and the Shropshire Borders, and to attractions like Powis Castle and the Michelin Star Checkers restaurant and rooms in Montgomery. There is so much to offer in this fantastic part of Mid Wales.

NOW OPEN for the season. IMPORTANT NOTICE: due to popular demand, we have extended the Opening Times of the Gardens to match those of The Potting Shed Café and The Chic Shed Shop. The Gardens will now be open Tuesday - Saturday and Bank Holiday Mondays, from 10:30am - 5pm.
