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
