2. Brynbella is a late eighteenth century small park and informal garden, with later overlays, built for Mr and Mrs Piozzi. Mrs Piozzi was previously Mrs Thrale, the well-known friend of Dr Johnson, who visited Brynbella, which has been changed considerably over the past two centuries. The setting of the house and views from it and the garden out over the park and the Vale of Clwyd make this an exceptionally attractive site. Features include a croquet lawn and a walled nineteenth century kitchen garden.. Source: Cadw Register of Parks and Gardens in Wales. 2003.12.17/RCAHMW/SLE & CSB
