Welcome to Plas Brondanw Gardens – A jewel in the Welsh Crown
Plas Brondanw was given to Sir Clough Williams-Ellis by his father in 1902.
The gardens at Plas Brondanw are the finest example of Sir Clough’s talent for creative landscape design.
The main features date from the early part of the 20th Century before he began Portmeirion, but work continued on and off until the 1960’s.
Sir Clough created a unique and characteristic garden landscape which provides a series of dramatic and romantic prospects set within the Snowdonia National Park, between Snowdon and the sea. Inspired by the gardens of Renaissance Italy, strong architectural influences are evident within the Plas gardens, stone walls, topiary and avenues of trees leading the eye to the dramatic back drop of the mountains beyond.
“Portmeirion…is perhaps [Clough Williams-Ellis’s] most famous creation…But it is the garden of Plas Brondanw, his home for more than 70 years, which is undoubtedly his most beautiful”
Anna Pavord, Observer Magazine.
