About this walk

Free to enter the grounds, £4 for the arboretum. You have to pay to park (4 hours is £2.50) but receive a voucher for a hot drink in the cafe. Opening hours: 10am – 4pm Dogs need to be kept in a lead in the arboretum and around the cafe, but ate allowed off of the lead in the woods, quarry and meadow. There is a cafe with a lovely seating area overlooking the deer park. Once one of the largest and most important estates in West Wales, Golden Grove covered 50,000 acres with 12 castles and five manors. The original Vaughan mansion, built between 1565 and 1570, no longer exists. During the Second World War it housed American airmen and following the war was leased to Carmarthenshire council and used as an agricultural college by Coleg Sir Gâr until 2003. Since then it has gone through various ownerships and is now owned by a trust.
