Described as one of North Wales’ best kept secrets is Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens.

Situated at the side of the Menai Strait, hidden from view near to Menai Bridge on the Isle of Anglesey.

In 1996, the present owner bought the 200 acre Plas Cadnant Estate and work began on the restoration of the historic garden and grounds. Since then large parts of the gardens have undergone a spectacular transformation and have been restored to their former glory.

Three different gardens have been discovered, including an unusual walled garden with curving walls and pool, a secret valley garden with three waterfalls and river, and an upper woodland garden with stone outcrops and the remains of a 19th-century folly.

Work started on restoring the gardens and grounds in 1997. This was a huge undertaking as large areas had not been maintained for over seventy years and restoration work has now been ongoing for over 20 years. As restoration and development continues, it is our pleasure to share this piece of paradise.
