Imagine discovering a lost garden with tunnels and underground grottoes buried under thousands of tonnes of soil for over 50 years. That’s what happened at Dewstow!
Built around 1895 the gardens were buried just after World War 2 and were rediscovered in 2000.
Dewstow Gardens and Grottoes is one of the lesser well-known attractions in South Wales but also one of the most interesting. The gardens are a wonderful place to wander in themselves, with beautifully landscaped paths and decorate beds, waterfalls and pools. Beneath all of this is a labyrinth of tunnels and grottoes.
