Gwysaney

Introduction

Part of the landscape park at Gwysaney was a 17th-century deer park, and has some contemporary walling and trees, including magnificent sweet chestnuts. The park is now permanent pasture with isolated trees. There is a fine 19th-century arboretum with many unusual mature specimen trees and a garden layout dating from the 19th and early-20th centuries, with several enclosed formal gardens.
