Find Accommodation near 'Dinefwr Park Riverside Trail'


This excellent trail lies with Dinefwr Park, a National Trust site near Llandeilo in Carmarthenshire. The majority of the trail is a well surfaced boardwalk with plenty of seating and passing points, which passes through woodland over a stream and down to a large pond with two seating areas. The whole trail (there and back) is three quarters of a mile long and took our researcher thirty minutes to complete.

Visitors who hold blue badge parking permits are able to drive down a rough track from the main car park to a small parking area adjacent to the start of the trail. Please request permission to do so from the Welcome Cabin information point/ticket office located in the main car park. Please note there is a fee for accessing the park which also includes entrance to Newton House.

Access to the start of the trail is though a backward opening, weighted iron gate and most wheelchair users will require assistance to open this. Apart from this issue, the whole of the trail is level one and easy access.

The surrounding woodland along the trail is very pleasant and on our researchers visit in high summer there were plenty of damsel and dragonflies.

It is important to note that the boardwalk is elevated over the marshy land and streams in places (see photo 9) and as there is no hand rail, visitors with visual impairment may find a companion useful and parents of children will need to exercise some caution.

There are two designated toilets on site, one is located at the Welcome Cabin and one at the side of Newton House (this has larger dimensions and better access).
