Steps on a woodland path lit by dappled sunlight at Colby Woodland Garden

A beautiful woodland garden and a fun place to be!

Set in a tranquil secret valley this hidden woodland garden with a rich industrial past is full of surprises.

Spring brings carpets of bluebells, crocuses, and daffodils, then swathes of camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas, followed by hydrangeas and the summer wildflowers.

Enjoy shady woodland walks, the wildflower meadow and colourful walled garden in summer, and the marvellous colours of acers, dogwoods and Sweet-gum in autumn.

Explore the meadow with its lovely stream, stepping stones, log bridge and abundant dragonflies and butterflies.

Build dens in the woods, cook your own food at one of our campfires, play on the rope swings, borrow our ducks to race on the stream or use our free pond dipping kits and games for the meadow.

Or why not just bring a picnic, let the kids play in the stream and relax?

Discover the secret past, hidden wildlife and rich history in the Bothy information centre, watch a video of Colby through the seasons or explore Pembrokeshire with the virtual tour.
