We’ve just returned from four wonderful days in the depths of the Welsh countryside inland from Aberaeron. The friends we were staying with recommended that we visit the nearby walled garden of Ty Glyn. It is so tucked away that it took two tries before we located it, but once there we were enchanted. It had been abandoned and long neglected when it was restored in the 1980s to provide safe outdoor space for children with disabilities who stay in nearby holiday accommodation. It is filled with flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables, with wide, wheelchair accessible paths, but there is nothing institutional about it and it is a delightful place for anyone to visit. During the growing season the garden is usually open daily. Your donation will help them continue the upkeep of this lovely garden.
