" A Castle And Garden In Wales......"
This is in the ancient kingdom of Powys: Montgomeryshire, parts of Denbighshire and Radnorshire and large areas of Shropshire.
The castle itself is magnificent: there are superb State rooms, furniture to marvel at......even a Museum, dedicated to Clive ( of India)...... and in every corner, stories ripple... and much-loved possessions are to be seen, on sideboards, on dressers, on ornate marble mantle pieces. ....as dignified, all-seeing ancestors watch us from portraits.... by Sir Joshua Reynolds and his ilk.
BUT it's the gardens of Powys which are its true delight. They're said to be " baroque" in character....AND stunningly lovely at all times of the year....but now gorgeous with lush rhododendrons, laburnum, azaleas...and the glorious beginnings of summer flowers.
A Treat Of A Place: a castle with a garden undoubtedly for All Seasons.
