Knighton gardens to reopen to public

By Karen Compton | Mid Wales | Attractions | Published:

Three gardens in Knighton are opening to raise money for Nursing Charities this week.

Hebron, a ½ acre Victorian town garden is open every day from Monday, August 9 to Sunday, August 16.

The amazing Japanese Stroll Garden, Tranquillity Haven, at Whitton Knighton is open both tomorrow (Saturday, August 7) and Sunday (August 8), and if you missed it last weekend there is another opportunity to see the garden at Pont Faen House on the edge of town.

Val Brown and her late husband started creating Tranquillity Haven from nothing 15 years ago.

Val says she loves the serenity of the bamboos and acers.

She opened her garden for the first time in 2019.

Val said; “My husband died with cancer two years ago. I saw what he went through and all the help he had from MacMillan, so now I am giving something back.”

This ‘garden of rooms’ is full of surprises. Each area has its own atmosphere, with beehives and garden art hidden amongst the shrubs.
