Cyfie Farm Prize Winning Gardens
Our garden has been included in The National Garden Scheme (NGS) for the last six years, and in 2014 we won 1st prize in the Montgomery Association Farm Garden Awards. We have a one-acre hillside country garden with spectacular views across the Vyrnwy Valley and Welsh Hills. Our terraced formal areas with roses, mature shrubs, herbaceous borders are peppered with walks through the garden on different levels, leading to an informal area with mature trees, rhododendrons, azaleas, and heathers. There is a stepped path to the upper and lower summerhouses where there is a wild garden, a bluebell bank with wonderful views and many seating areas where the peaceful location is best enjoyed.
1st Prize for Cyfie:
In 2014 we were very honoured to win 1st prize in the Montgomery Farms Association Farm Garden Awards. We were very surprised to receive a huge silver cup !! Here is the winning summary of the garden as described by the judges:
''Cyfie Farm Garden: As you entered the farmyard at the top of the farm it was wondeful to see the interesting use made of old farm implements, some planted up with a lovely variety of flowers and plants. Others were used as features to enhance the look of the yard and keep the farmhouse character, giving you the impression of entering a typical country farmhouse garden. The garden was well laid out and the beds were full of good colour and varying height. The wild flower meadow was an added bonus to the woodland area, where paths meandered through to the odd seat dotted here and there from which to sit and relax and admire the stunning views. A superb farmhouse garden. '
This year Claire was a judge for the 2015 competition.
We have been featured in the Amateur Gardening Magazine and in an article from the Wales View magazine, produced by Visit Wales, of which 500K copies were distributed last year across the world!
We have several sculptures by Andy Hancock (seen next to 'The Guardian') which are significant additions to our lovely gardens.
