Gardens Felinewydd is known for its wonderful gardens. Beyond the Wisteria clad south façade and gravelled sweep are formal lawns with a central, circular pond surrounded by well established trees such as Copper Beach, Weeping Willow and Holly which run to the stream and park railings. An arboretum with spring bulbs surrounds the stream which has a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs .
A side garden with a lawn, topiaried yew hedge, stone walls and herbaceous beds make the most of the morning sun, with a further area of mature trees and bulbs on a raised area behind the house. The kitchen garden with greenhouses and potting sheds are beyond the stables.

Additional Land Available by separate negotiation should it be desired, the extra approximate 32 acres of land lies to the west and to the other side of the river. The ground is ideal grazing and is adjoins the grounds mentioned above with its own independent access from the lane to the north of Felinewydd.
