Nant-y-Bedd is a 10 acre organic 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 40 years, assisted over the past 20 or so 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, the shepherd’s hut, tree-sculpture Cedric a treehouse and most recently another tree sculpture by the amazing Mick Petts

A wonderful development in 2019 was our selection as only one of ten 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!  Well, it was to start with, but after we won the Partner Garden of the Year 2022, maybe it isn’t. 

We’ve been lucky to have a number of film crews here, starting with BBC2’s Carole Klein in 2007.  2019 brought Alan Titchmarsh and his Love Your Garden programme. In 2021, we hosted BBC Gardeners World and Monty Don who did the links form here during their end of season special on Trees.   In 2022 we welcomed the Welsh-language S4C programme Garddio a Mwy.   Last year both ITV Coast and Country and Channel 4’s Caroline Quentin’s National Parks came to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Nant-y-Bedd

In the press, most recently we’ve been featured in Gardens Illustrated and The Times and 2024 will bring a feature article in The Garden magazine, the flagship publication of the RHS.
