Nant y Bedd is a 6.5 acre organic RHS Partner garden and woodland located at 1200 feet up in the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales. Sue has been gardening here for 38 years, assisted over the past 20 years by Ian. Slowly but surely the garden has grown and evolved with various projects being added over the years, including the natural swimming pond, pictured above with the shepherd’s hut.

One of our greatest thrills was being featured in Saga Magazine in mid 2014. The article ran to six pages of wonderful pictures and text. Last year have featured in Country Homes & Interiors (photographed & written by Carole Drake) and House and Garden (Photographed by Britt Willoughby-Dyer and written by Sarah Price). There was also an article in the Organic Way in September / October and most recently a feature on our woodland (complete with interesting typo in the sub-heading!) in the Small Woods Association magazine.

A wonderful new development for 2019 (and beyond) is our selection as only one of eleven Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Partner Gardens in Wales. To be classed alongside the likes of the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, Aberglasney and Dyffryn Gardens is a great privilege – and more than a bit scary!
