Gwydir Castle Tree


Gwydir Castle is an ancient Welsh house situated in the beautiful Conwy Valley, in the foothills of Snowdonia.

The historic gardens at Gwydir Castle are amongst the very few in Wales accorded Grade 1 listed status.  They represent an important example of the formal Renaissance garden of the Tudor and Stuart periods, with later overlays and plantings from the nineteenth century.  As well as two fine 16th century garden arches and associated walls and terraces, there are many fine early trees, including fourteen pre-1700 yews and three surviving Cedars of Lebanon from the original twelve said to have been planted in honour of King Charles I’s wedding to the French Princess, Henrietta Maria in 1625.
