Isfryn, Bethania, Open garden 19th August 11- 5


By 2ndhand


A five acre garden opens to the public for the NGS scheme. It is split in two sections, A his and hers, and neither shall they merge.
It is situated 15 miles SE of Aberystwyth. So if you live locally or are holidaying anywhere between Prestatyn and the Bristol Channel or are near St Davids, just ‘pop’ along to Bethania for a good look round for a few hours, Then you can partake of the home baked goodies on offer, from cupcakes, some usual flavours, Slice of a choice of fudge cakes, or large chocolate eclairs or even a DEATH BY CHOCOLATE individual 4" pie. Well behaved dogs welcome, Children must be kept on a lead. :-)

The Om’s filed which also includes ample off road parking

The oh so lush Veg polytunnel, all virginal like, (only male flowers)

The has been veg plot, now further perennial plantings.

More of the OM’s field leading up to the immature maze, but not immature enough for short legs to cheat.

Glad to see it appears to have recovered from the floods.

When we have heavy rain, it usually drains away within a few days. So never any lasting damage. That's the nice thing about having a gentle slope.
