In severe weather Garwnant will be closed to the public (wind speeds/gusts over 31mph) -consult the local weather forecasts. If you are in any doubt, please phone before visiting Garwnant to make sure we are open.

When possible, we also place notices about closures on our Facebook page which can be accessed here.

Explore over 400 acres of beautiful woodland. Experience our tranquil nature trails or thrilling kids' mountain bike course and enjoy fresh local produce in our restaurant. 

Until further notice, the site barriers at Garwnant will be open from 0900 until 1700 with the visitor centre building and toilet facilities usually open from 0930 until 1630.  The restaurant will ordinarily be open from 1100 until 1500 on weekdays and from 1100 until 1600 at weekends.  During the Easter and Summer holidays, the restaurant will be open from 1000 until 1700.

A disease called Phytophthora ramorum has infected some of the larch trees at Garwnant Visitor Centre and as there is no treatment for the disease at the moment, therefore, the trees have to be felled.

Some felling work has been done and more is planned for later in the year.  Signs will be in place around the site to notify visitors of any closures and diversions. We apologise for any inconvenience
