Llanover House, Nr Abergavenny
Well-controlled dogs on short leads are allowed in the Gardens and Fair
A 15-acre listed garden and arboretum with lakes, streams and cascades which are created by the Rhyd y Meirch stream which flows into the top of the garden. Unusual trees, shrubs and flowers have been planted for over 200 years and provide superb autumn colour in a beautiful setting. It is likely that the landscaping trends of Capability Brown influenced the owners in the 19th Century, as seen by plantings of London plane trees and beech which still grow today. The large herbaceous borders in the unusual circular walled garden, which also includes a beautiful dovecote, have been planted for late summer interest.
