Aberglasney Winter Fair 2017
One of Carmarthenshire‘s if not Wales’s biggest and most popular Christmas Fairs begins on Friday 1st December at 11 a.m – The Aberglasney Winter Fair 2017.
Don’t miss this wonderful annual event!
We love visiting Aberglasney all year round and this particular event has grown to be increasingly popular for locals and for those from further afield. Obviously there will be fewer flowers in the beautiful borders but there is still the chance of a breathtaking walk within the grounds.
At the moment we have space at Old Oak Barn for that weekend – please email for more details. Info@oldoakbarn.co.uk
The walled gardens have matured well these last few years – did you know there are over a mile of walls and recently designs have concentrated on planting more climbers than ever!
The evening sun catches the light in the middle garden and although not a lot of colour in some parts of the gardens we were struck by how pretty the form and structures are.
One of the best things about the gardens are its tranquil setting within the landscape of Carmarthenshire. The story of Aberglasney spans many centuries, but, the house’s origins are still shrouded in obscurity. There are constant changes and alterations going on all the time at what must surely be one of Wales’s finest gardnes and country houses.
