Gwel Yr Ynys 
Garden

A challenging hillside garden in Penmaenmawr North Wales. Developed by Dafydd Lloyd-Borland.

Welcome to Gwel Yr Ynys Garden

The garden is in its ninth year. Some areas are quite mature while others have just being planted. The garden is ever changing and the work is never done. The garden has a variety of herbaceous planting, shrubs and trees  in a fantastic rural setting.

The Watkin Jones Homes Group and Ravenscroft Homes North Wales Limited developed a housing estate on the former site of an impressive manor house known Plas Foel-Lus, Graiglwyd Road, Penmaenmawr.


The ordinance survey map of 1891 highlights the location of the house and its boundary.  There is evidence that the grounds of the house was home to an ornamental lake, which was serviced by the stream, which runs along the boundary.
