Aberglasney House and Gardens is a medieval house and gardens set in the Towy valley, Carmarthenshire, West Wales.

Location

Aberglasney is located just off the busy A40 road between Llandeilo and Carmarthen town, 3 miles from Llandeilo.

History & Attractions

Spectacularly set in the beautiful Tywi valley of rural Carmarthenshire, Aberglasney House features one of the finest gardens in Wales. The first owners were members of the Rudd family, thought to have acquired the Aberglasney estate sometime around 1600, followed by Robert Dyer, a successful Carmarthen lawyer, who purchased Aberglasney in 1710.

In the Summer (April to September) Aberglasney is open from 10am - 6pm; In the Winter (October to March) - 10:30am - 4pm. There are entry costs, but membership of Aberglasney, reduces these fees.
