A leading Mid Wales hotel, conference and events venue is to host a garden party on Bank Holiday Monday, August 29, to support the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust.
Visitors to Gregynog Hall at Tregynon, near Newtown, which nestles on a 750-acre estate described as one of the jewels in Wales’ crown, will be able to wander the gardens, the former home of the altruistic Davies sisters, the Dell area and circular walk around the lily pond where Margaret Davies used to sit and paint.
There will be a rare opportunity to view the hall itself, where there will be an exhibition of photographs of the garden, taken in bygone years and Welsh tea will be served in the beautiful wood panelled Blayney Room, whilst listening to the piano being played in the senior common room.
Annette Dowling, from Gregynog Hall, said: “We are really looking forward to this lovely afternoon, which offers such a lot to the visitor, come rain or shine! We’ve put together an interesting event at an inclusive ticket price of £8 per person. Advance booking is recommended and tickets can be purchased from our reception or on Tel: 01686 650224.”
Gregynog Estate, made famous by the art collecting Davies sisters, Gwendoline and Margaret, has been managed by the University of Wales for more than half a century.
