Dewstow Gardens & Hidden Grottos

Attractions

Dewstow Gardens & Grottoes is one of the lesser well known attractions in South Wales, but also one of the most interesting. The gardens are a wonderful place to wander in themselves, with beautifully landscaped paths and decorative beds, waterfalls and pools and beneath all this, a labrynth of tunnels and grottoes Imagine discovering a lost garden with tunnels and underground grottoes buried under thousands of tonnes of soil for over 50 years. That’s what happened at Dewstow Gardens & Grottoes. Built around 1895, the gardens were buried just after World War Two and rediscovered in 2000. The gardens contain many ponds and rills, but interestingly a labyrinth of underground grottoes, tunnels and sunken ferneries. The rock gardens are made up of a mixture of real stone and faced stone using various types of Pulhamite. Dewstow Gardens & Grottoes is a great place to visit for families and groups. There are many tunnels and underground grottoes to explore. . Why not make this a must during your visit to South Wales?

Review

If I didn't know better I could of easily been forgiven for thinking that Dewstow was the setting for Lewis Carroll's ‘Alice in wonderland' Dewstow House was built before l804, when John Proctor (d. l837) lived there. Dewstow Gardens were built after 1895 and buried after World War II. Rediscovery and large scale restoration of the gardens began in 2000. There is a labyrinth of tunnels interconnecting underground grottoes, ponds, tropical glass houses, rock garden and an alpine garden that help to make this attraction not one to be missed. If I'd of had time I could easily of spent hours at this very special place! So if I were you, I'd pack a flask! You could be there for sometime!
