"Arne Maynard is one
of the most talented
garden designers
working in Britain
today. Whether in the
city or in the depths
of the country,
his gardens are a
magical combination
of architecture and
romance, the classic
and the contemporary,
and relate to their
surroundings in subtle
ways." Tricia Guild

Allt-y-bela was chosen by award winning writers Helena Attlee and Emma Banyon as the setting for a creative writing course back in July. A collective poem about the garden was created - abstract yet evocative, it captures some of the garden's spirit.


Allt-y-bela courses

All but one of the garden courses at Allt-y-bela are now complete with the final day of our four day seasonal course coming up in September. We will announce 2015 dates towards the end of the year but in the meantime we have a new Allt-y-bela Garden Diary...
