The Brondanw Estate lies within the Snowdonia National Park, between Snowdon and the sea. Plas Brondanw is the principal house on the estate. This was the home of Clough Williams-Ellis and his wife Amabel, whose work and estate is the subject of this feature. The estate was enlarged when Clough bought two adjoining mountainous properties threatened by mining. The Brondanw Estate has never been bought or sold and is now owned by a charitable trust for its protection The gardens are open to the public. The gardens at Plas Brondanw are not as famous as his village of Portmeirion, but many people consider them to be Clough's most marvellous creation. This devotion continued throughout Clough's long life - he lived to 95. As the gardens grew and matured the avenues extended outward into the fields with vistas up to the mountain peaks, as he had planned. oday the gardens are open to the public, and for details of admission cost and times, as well as latest news about the many events held there, please visit the website.
