Llanover Gardens

Benjamin Waddington, the direct ancestor of the current owners, purchased the house and land in 1792. Subsequently he created a series of ponds, cascades and rills which form the backbone of the 15 acre garden as the stream winds its way from its source in the Black Mountains to the River Usk. There are herbaceous borders, a water garden, champion trees and three areas devoted to wild flowers including the entrance drive which has over 18 key indicator species and is regarded as an excellent example of a species-rich grassland.

In addition to the numerous herbaceous borders, lawns and areas devoted to wild flowers, there are unusual trees and shrubs planted by six generations of the family. The herbaceous borders in the Round Garden, were designed in 2009 by Mary Payne with the brief 'Maximum effect for minimum effort’ . Robin Herbert V.M.H., a past President of the Royal Horticultural Society planted many trees known for their spectacular autumn colour including acers, nyssas, caryas and liquidambars .

The garden has featured in The RHS Garden magazine (Nov 2017), Country Living (Nov 2020), Landscape magazine ( Sept 2020), Gardenista and Countrylife (Mar 2021 & Oct 2015) magazines. Television credits include the Channel 5 series 'Great British Gardens' with Carol Klein in December 2021 and C4s ‘Great Canal Journeys’.

The house (not open) is the birthplace of Augusta Waddington, Lady Llanover, C19 patriot, supporter of the Welsh language and traditions and wife of Benjamin Hall, Lord Llanover, after whom the bell ‘Big Ben’ is named.
