Our View

Set in the heart of mid-Wales, just two miles from the attractive market town of Welshpool, this beautiful and renowned garden attracts many visitors from home and abroad. Winding down a south-facing hillside to reach a lake with a pretty waterfall, many varieties of shrubs and perennials have been laid out in colour-themed beds against a backdrop of unusual trees, acers and mature conifers. Autumn is one of the best times to visit Dingle, when panoramic views from the far side of the lake take in the garden’s spectacular tree colour. Operating alongside the garden are the Dingle Nurseries, where a large number of the unusual shrubs and trees that have inspired you in the garden can be bought to take home.

About The area

Discover Powys

The largest unitary authority in Wales, Powys covers an area of approximately 2,000 square miles. Much of that is mountainous because it actually has the lowest population density of all the Welsh counties.

This much wild, empty space is perhaps best typified by the International Dark Sky Reserve in the Brecon Beacons National Park, one of only eleven in the world. The absence of light pollution creates an exceptional spot for star gazing. You won’t find any cities in Powys, just villages and smaller-sized towns, but that’s the way its inhabitants like it. 

Newtown, the largest settlement, is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of Robert Owen, the founder of the Co-operative movement. Brecon is a market town set on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, while the pretty Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells boasts the National Cycle Collection. Elsewhere, Hay-on-Wye hosts a major literary festival every year.

Powys is liberally scattered with castles, burial mounds, hill forts, and other historic markers; Powis Castle, near Welshpool is probably one of the most impressive. And for walking enthusiasts, it’s not just the Brecon Beacons on offer – the Elan Valley describes itself as the ‘Welsh Lake District’.
