Covering 13 acres, this garden for all seasons hosts a variety of rhododendrons and azaleas in spring, including a 120-year-old rhododendron tunnel.

Museum
“Hedd Wyn - farmer, soldier, poet. On sun filled summer days, there is no wonder that Hedd Wyn was a reluctant soldier, he was happy at home, he enjoyed the harvest, and he thrived with a pen. A self taught poet that mastered the hardest lines of Welsh poetry, (the cynghanedd) from the tender age of twelve, there is no wonder that he ultimately won the biggest prize in Welsh literature, the National Eisteddfod Chair. However unknown to the thousands in attendance at the Birkenhead National Eisteddfod, six weeks before the Archdruid announced his pseudo name 'Fleur-di-lis' on a stage on the outskirts of Liverpool. Hedd Wyn had been shot in the stomach and passed away under the fireworks of bullets in a field far away from his own.”
