Portmeirion Gardens, Penrhyndeudraeth

Y Gwyllt literally translated from the Welsh means 'The Wild Place' and that is what it is today, a magical wilderness, a myriad of intertwining paths leading through exotic plantings and jungle like vegetation down to windswept beaches with white sands and rocky promontories. Isolated, luminous and above all 'Wild' - all this with the majestic mountain ranges of Eryri as a back drop to the north and in an amphitheatre the Moelwyns, the Arrenigs and the Rhinogau beyond Harlech.
