Plas Cadnant is quietly hidden away up on the hills just off the coast road to Beaumaris.
Head up the steep road through the woods and then through the fields of sheep. As you get over the crest, head down to the parking area and entrance to the Gardens.
The drive is as nice as any with great views and frolicking sheep. At times you will get a little glimpse of the gardens you will soon be exploring. On arrival at this wonderful and historic estate you can see why it is loved by all who visit. Its multiple buildings are now grade 2 listed and have been since 1967. The old Georgian house has been in situ since 1803.
Plas Cadnant hiddens gardens is immaculately maintained and has some rare and exotic plants. The owner who I met when visiting was very friendly and full of information on the history of the site. Lack of planning on my part saw us arrive 30 minutes before opening time and he was kind enough to grant us early access. I am so glad he did as we got to explore the place entirely to ourselves for a while.
The highlight for us on our visit was the ravine area. A great spot to explore and the flowing pools at the bottom were stunning, and we spotted fish too.
