The garden at Mountain Ash is open again this year, to raise money for the National Gardens Scheme's nursing and caring charities, on Sunday 5th July and Sunday 12th July, both days from 11.00am to 5.00pm.

The lower two thirds of the garden has been created during the last 10 years, including the pond and the planting of over 170 conifers and deciduous trees. There are many places to sit and relax around the garden. More »
