Tucked away in tranquil Amroth in Pembrokeshire, The National Trust’s Colby Woodland Garden is a stunning place to explore.
It’s a hidden gem of walks, blooms, streams and a never-ending meadow filled with daisies and wild flowers.
After arrival, we headed straight to the walled garden. Walking through the metal gate, you are greeted by trees and gorgeous flowers of all colours. Statues are dotted around walkways and paths and a fountain babbles downstream from a summerhouse.
As someone who loved The Secret Garden as a child, it felt lovely to look around this hidden place.
Our toddler was enchanted by the flowers and the ducks who were taking a swim in the fountains.
From the walled garden, our next step was to find the meadow and the network of paths and bridges around it. The children enjoyed discovering steps and walkways, picking up sticks and leaves and hunting for dandelion clocks. As it’s early May, the bluebells were also out in force.
Tired young legs meant we only explored part of this beautiful, expansive place. But what we saw was gorgeous.
There is ample car parking by the garden and a cafe on site serving a selection of meals and light bites for hungry walkers.
We paid £17.50 for a family ticket to the garden, which included access to the walled garden.
