Dyffryn Gardens are an exceptional example of Edwardian garden design. Designed by eminent landscape architect Thomas Mawson in 1906, the gardens are the early 20th-century vision of coal magnate John Cory and his plant-collecting son, Reginald.

Sometimes referred to as the ‘Welsh Kew’, they cover more than 55 acres and feature a stunning collection of intimate garden rooms including a rose garden, Pompeian garden and several ponds. There is also a large glasshouse, statuary collection, and arboretum featuring trees from all over the world.

The enormous great lawn is marked at its northern end by Dyffryn House, a grand Victorian mansion. The National Trust are bringing this great home back to life making the most of its key features including the Grade II* listed Great Hall and decorative ceilings.

Featuring brand-new photography and evocative archive images this guidebook brings the excitement of plant-collecting in the Edwardian era to life, and reveals some surprising stories about the Corys and the garden.
