(Guest post by Roy Mathias)
We were lucky to have perfect weather on our visit to Bodnant Gardens. Bodnant Garden is on a hill. At the top is the house, then on the terrace below is the Italian Garden, below that the large pond, below that the Pin Mill (a smaller pond), and then there is walk through the woodland garden to the Dell, through which runs the river Hiraethlyn.
Here are some pictures organised into galleries. Click on any of the thumbnails to see a larger version, and use the arrows to see the rest of the gallery.
The Large Reflecting Pool
I am a sucker for reflections, so please excuse any excess, and skip to the next gallery.
The Pin Mill
The terrace below the large pond has a shallower, narrow rectangular pond. Here are some pictures (some of the dragonfly images are actually from the large pool).
The Woodland Garden and the Dell
There is charming walk through the woodland garden to the Dell at the bottom of the valley. The sights are not at dramatic as the two pools above.
A few other pictures including the Laburnum Walk
Bodnant House is not open to the public, but here are some views of the outside.
