Estate - Access Guidelines
The Hafod Partnership
believes that Hafod is a very special place, and that the public should
be enabled to enjoy and understand its unique landscape;
And that All those
who use Hafod, whether as a place of work, a home, or for recreation,
have a responsibility to respect the site, its animals and plants, and
other visitors and residents.
To ensure that
the Hafod landscape is safeguarded and sustained for generations to
come, we would ask visitors to follow these simple guidelines:
1. Explore on
foot. The historic landscape was designed to be experienced by walkers,
and this remains the most enjoyable and least intrusive way to see
2. Take note
of information provided on distances and grading of walks; the longer,
more rugged walks are not suitable for everyone.
3. Stay on designated
paths: respect the privacy of residents, and be aware of forestry
operations and estate traffic.
4. Do not light
fires or barbecues. Camping is not allowed.
5. Cycle only
on the forest roads. Cycles may be left at the Estate Office by those
arriving by bike and wishing to walk at Hafod.
6. Obtain permits
for horse-riding (on forest roads only) from the Estate office.
7. Leave vehicles
in the periphery car parks. Limited parking for the less able will
be made available at the Estate Office, but casual parking elsewhere
in the estate is not permitted.
8. Do not bring
off-road vehicles or motorbikes into the Hafod estate; their use in
this setting is damaging and unauthorised, and breaches will be treated
For the benefit of everyone at Hafod, the managers will do their best
to ensure that these guidelines are complied with, that all footpaths
- whether public or permissive - are signed and kept free of obstructions,
and that up-to-date information on access is provided to visitors.
