The Gardens are now open for the season 5 days a week excluding Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Also do come and see us at our new venture! "Gorwelion". LL23 7NW just before the bridge on the way into Bala. It is clearly signposted. There is a cafe, gift shop and plant sales and also a newly installed "Sof Play" Barn, but find out all about this, the Gardens and our other concerns on www.visitbala.org
Caerau Uchaf has the highest private garden open to the public in North Wales at well over 1000 ft.
The Gardens were started in 1994 and are being added to all of the time. They are owned by Toby and Stephanie Hickish of Caerau Gardens Ltd. an award winning Garden Design and Landscaping Company, always happy to give advice or talk to keen gardeners.
PENLLYN AND GLASLLYN LEISURE CENTRE CAFES!
We also run cafes at leisure centres in Bala and Porthmadog where you will get much of the same food and cakes we prepare for the Gardens. See you at Caffi Tegid in Bala on the lake shore in The Penllyn Leisure Centre building LL23 7SR and also at Caffi Madog in the Glasllyn Leisure Centre Porthmadog near Tesco and the Train and Coach Stations, LL49 9HW .
"We build Show Gardens at RHS Shows at Tatton Park or Hampton Court Palace. The advantage of this is that we are able to salvage plants and structures from these gardens to use ourselves. The gardens have developed quite quickly with some interesting collections of plants as a result of this and the huge advantage of having a construction team on tap!"
The Café is manned during the peak seasons and informally at all other times. We offer Teas, Homemade Cakes and Pastries and also a home cooked Lunchtime menu in the main season.
We have a small Nursery and aim to increase Plant Sales and gifts over the coming year.
