Lovely gardens and very educational, learning about the history through the free booklets at the entrance and lovely cake and coffee at the cafe. Didn't do the house as had the dogs but could spend ample time n the gardens.

I have known Plas Tan y Bwlch and the surrounding gardens and woodland for over 40 years and love visiting. They run some fascinating courses.
