Llanllowell House is the home of Meadows Group member Hamish Sandison. He has two lovely hay meadows, an orchard meadow and woodland alongside a stream called Llewellyn’s Dingle. The meadows will be open in the afternoon from 2pm. There will also be an opportunity to see the Gwent Wildlife Trust reserve at Springdale Farm.
