About Gwaenynog Hall Gardens

In the late 19th century Gwaenynog Hall was owned by Beatrix Potter's aunt and uncle Harriet and Fred. From 1895 to 1913 the author visited north Wales 13 times and fell in love with the Hall and its gardens. She used the kitchen gardens as the setting for The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies, and used her sketches of garden features to illustrate the book. You can see Mr McGregor's potting shed, looking just as it did in the book.
The gardens have been restored to the way they looked when Beatrix Potter visited, with pear and apple trees, peaches, damson plums, and herbaceous plants creating a lush scene. And of course there are rabbits, which continue to visit just as they did when Beatrix Potter was here!
