Bodysgallen is surrounded by over 200 acres of its own parkland and beautiful gardens – both manicured and wild.

The gardens have been recognised for their award-winning restoration.  Featured are the rare C17th parterre of box hedges filled with sweet smelling herbs, at the centre of which is a sundial dated 1678, natural limestone outcrops, a rockery with cascade, walled gardens, lily ponds and several follies.  There is also a formal rose garden and a number of well-established specimen trees and shrubs, including medlar and mulberry.

Various springs traverse the parklands, and there are several woodland walks such as the Terrace Walk, the Ladies Walk, the Eastern Covert Walk or the Pydew Village Walk that lead to a Gothic Tower and the obelisk located on top of Pydew mountain.
