Maenan Hall

Gorgeous ten acre garden in the Conway Valley in north Wales created by the Aberconway family over seventy years, awash with colour and scent in May as the Dell comes alive with wild flowers and flowering shrubs and trees.

'The cadet branch of Bodnant' as Christopher McLaren likes to call it, who manages the garden now with his wife Janey. His father, Henry, 2nd Lord Aberconway, creator of the great terraces at Bodnant and supporter of many plant hunting expeditions in the early 20th century, bought the near derelict Maenan Hall in 1945 as a dower house for his wife Christabel. She and son Christopher moved in after Henry's death in 1953. Full of choice trees and shrubs this garden is testament to the family's passion for trees and shrubs. In recent year Janey has been keen to introduce more summer interest to the garden, particularly around the house and in the walled garden with roses, long flowering potentillas and herbaceous plants. A glorious spectacle with lashings of historic and horticultural interest.
