Welcome to our home and gardens which have grown and developed since 1976.Croeso i,n cartref a gerddi sydd wedi tyfu a datblygu yn syfrdanol ers 1976.

The Lodge was formerly the main entrance to Cilgwyn Manor, the mansion house of the largest estate in the community of Myddfai during the 19th and early 20th Century. The Lodge is approximately 200 years old in a valley setting surrounded by a ring of wooded hills typical of north west Carmarthenshire. The gardens, bisected by the entrance drive, are laid out to give a  wide variety of habitats and planting opportunities. There are plenty of seats to enjoy the garden and the views of the countryside.We are Keith and Moira and we love sharing our garden with visitors. Since the Millennium we have opened the gardens for charity under The National Gardens Scheme100_2776.JPG

    Paying the price for a mild winter, Spring bulbs lasting for ever, The joy of garden visiting in April Planting the Modern Garden, The first swallow in late April and a cuckoo at Cilgwyn

    A taste of real winter, a record comes to an end, a hard moon, unhappy hellebores, my world shrinks to a hospital bed and the gardens and nursery will not be open in 2016
