Oh how I love you Gelli Aur !! A return to a wonderful place. A place of running wild, fling your phone over your shoulder and spin around on the grass. Remember being young and carefree ❤❤❤

I was delighted to visit Gelli Aur Country Park today, expecting the worst but had a great time. The lovely cafe reopened again yesterday with seating in and outside and there is now a new play area, new toilets and beautiful walks with good paths...More

I used to visit Gelli Aur regularly to attend "Watch" - a group for young conservationists. The woodland paths were a child`s dream. In front of the house (which was always closed as it was used by Coleg Sir Gaer) there was a lovely collection...More

But now it's shambolic, the county council sold it off and the once impressive arboretum is now just a mess, the cafe closed and the children's play park broken down and destroyed. Since its been in private hands its just a mess. The deer park...More

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

We followed the numerous signs directing us to the country park, and saw several cars in the car park and people unloading dogs. On arrival it is like one of those scary abandoned theme parks. the cafe building is closed and shuttered, the children's play...More
