Stephen Anderton, of The Times calls Dyffryn Fernant, in Fishguard Pembrokeshire a collection of beautifully conceived gardens. It a number of small gardens within a large garden and the results are simply stunning.
The owner says; she’s started from a complete wilderness in 1996 and was thinking only of having a ‘Front’ and Kitchen garden. Thankfully for us she went beyond her initial idea. What I really liked about this garden was the mixture of naturalistic planting as well as the exotic and the very stylised.
It was such a welcoming garden and its tone is set by the honest system for paying one’s entry fee. A system, that always gets my vote. As member a RHS member, I didn’t have to pay but I did pay as I want to support this wonderful garden.
I loved so many elements of the garden. I loved the many varied sitting places that not only invite you to take your time but as with all sitting areas you get to see the gardens from different angles, which often give a totally different perspective.
I would urge anyone visiting Pembrokeshire to visit Dyffryn Fernant in Fishguard.
