Dingle Garden and Glansevern Hall Gardens
About a 15-minute drive apart, Dingle Garden and Glansevern Hall Gardens combined together make a lovely day out on a good weather day.
Dingle Garden, near the town of Welshpool, is an RHS partner garden and covers 4.5 acres. Well known for its colour-themed and unusual planting, there is plenty of inspiration for gardeners. Yet, most visit purely for taking in the beauty, the divine scents and the sounds of nature the garden promises. Stroll around the stream-fed lake, admire the trickling waterfall and enjoy a picnic, then pop into the adjoining nursery to pick up some plants.
Glansevern Hall Gardens, open at weekends, are situated on the banks of the River Severn and cover 25 acres. Expect to see diverse and exotic planting, plus a 5-acre lake, a water garden and a formal walled garden. There are lakeside and woodland trails to help you explore and some surprises along the way, including a Folly Garden. There are special experiences available too, including picking herbs for distilling into your own essential oil.
