Historic Welsh Gardens to be Restored
Date Posted: 10/04/13
A number of historic country gardens throughout Wales are to be restored this summer, providing excellent opportunities for people staying in Cardiff hotels to get out of the city for a day.
A total of seven stunning parks and woods are receiving a facelift, some of which will be reopening their doors to visitors for the first time in several years.
Dylan Thomas, Wales's most famous poet, spent much of his childhood at Cwmdonk Park, and many of the garden's features are to be revitalised in preparation for the centenary of the great writer's birth.
Elsewhere, wildlife lovers will no doubt want to visit the 18th century country house at Bryngarw Country Park, which is being restored this year and offers visitors the chance to see a wide array of animals including bats and the shyer polecat.
Penllergare Valley Woods, meanwhile, features a number of stunning waterfalls and terraces and has now undergone a complete transformation after being left in disrepair for several decades.
