Beautiful and tranquil woodland walks with great views across the Towy Valley. Open on weekends and all free of charge. Many thanks to Golden Grove Trust who are working hard to save and renovate the mansion and arboretum which will re-open to the public.

Hope this place opens up soon. If this is the intentions of the renovator?! It was a beautiful walk, with lovely tea rooms and small children's park. Hopefully the renovation won't make the park too commercialised and keep the majority of natural beauty. Miss this...More

To repeat the last two comments, this park is CLOSED, despite the plentiful brown tourist attraction road signs directing towards it. Apparently it has been sold, and the current owners have signs discouraging public access, so don't waste your time by trying to find it.
