Gelli Aur is a Country Park with 60 acres of wooded parkland surrounding a magnificent mansion. With commanding views across the beautiful Towy Valley, Gelli Aur was once the home of the Vaughan and Cawdor families. This 'Golden Grove', to use its English translation, has a wide range of attractions that the visitor will treasure. For your further enjoyment a programme of events, craft demonstrations and guided walks is available throughout the year.
The nature trails explore woodland, parkland, ponds and meadow. In spring lesser celandine, wood sorrel and bluebells carpet the woodland floor. Breeding birds include pied fly catchers, chiff-chaffs and blue tits. During the summer up to five different species of orchid can be seen in the meadow. Butterflies include ringlets, small skippers and meadow browns. During winter keep an eye out for flocks of feeding birds; these include great tits, nuthatches, siskins and goldcrests.
DeerA Fawn at Gelli Aur
The 20-acre deer park has around 20 fallow deer. During the hey-day of the estate the deer park was once 400 acres with 600 head of deer. There are two types of fallow deer at Gelli Aur; those with dark brown coats and those with white-spotted light brown coats. The bucks cast their antlers in spring and grow new antlers in velvet through the summer. The rut is in October; with the does giving birth to fawns the following June.
The Mansion, with its crow stepped gables, battlemented portico and tall polygonal chimney stacks, is an impressive building. However, the original Vaughan 1 mansion built between 1565 and 1570 no longer exists. In 1804 the last of the Vaughans died childless and the Gelli Aur estate passed to the Cawdor family. It was they who built the present mansion between 1827 and 1832. The large house where the family resided is in contrast to the long service wing. Please note that the mansion is not open to the public.
AzeleaAzalea in bloom
The arboretum, or tree collection, is 10 acres of mature trees and shrubs. The arboretum was planted in the 1860's by the Cawdor's head gardener, William Hill. Mature trees include Giant Redwood, Monterey Pine and Fern-Leaved Beech. The rhododendrons and azaleas are at their best in May. Recent planting has been carried out by the County Council to ensure the continuity of this outstanding feature.
Gelli Aur Country Park is managed by Carmarthenshire County Council. For further information contact the Countryside Warden on 01558 668885.
The Sheikh Zayed Mosque
We went to Abu Dhabi for three reasons:
1. To say we went to Abu Dhabi.
2. It was cheaper to fly into AUH than DXB (Dubai).
3. To see Sheikh Zayed Mosque.
(I put in two of those reasons because I felt bad for really only having one reason to visit Abu Dhabi.)
But let me tell you, that third reason?
The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is hands down the best mosque I've ever seen.
I've always wanted to visit the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore, but why do I need to anymore when I visited a pearl white one sitting in the UAE with the world's largest chandelier and the world's largest carpet?
The mosque truly was amazing. Shining so bright in the Emirati sun that you have to squint while standing in the magnificent courtyard just to see anything.
Many things associated with it are highly unnecesssary... but I guess that's in line with the Emirati culture... bad dum pum.
But it truly was jaw-dropping.
There were a few annoying rules though.
No photos before Juma.
Every female has to wear an abayya (they a room full of them though for those who didn't have one).
Feet police making sure your feet are not in the direction of the Makkah wall.
But at least it was nice to hear tons of Urdu (which, I feel, is the dominant language in the UAE!)
I'll Inshallah be going to al-Haram next month and perhaps until then, Sheikh Zayed Mosque? You're the best.
(Dome of the Rock gets honorable mention too... but that's not a mosque.)

The Magnificent Seven Academy Award® Winner*
Yul Brynner stars in the landmark western that launched the film careers of Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and James Coburn. Tired of being ravaged by marauding bandits, a small Mexican village seeks help from seven American gunfighters. Set against Elmer Bernstein’s Oscar® Nominated** score, director John Sturges’ thrilling adventure belongs in any Blu-ray collection.
*1956: Actor, The King and I **1960
Return of the Magnificent Seven
Yul Brynner rides tall in the saddle in this sensational sequel to The Magnificent Seven! Brynner rounds up the most unlikely septet of gunfighters—Warren Oates, Claude Akins and Robert Fuller among them—to search for their compatriot who has been taken hostage by a band of desperados.
Guns of the Magnificent Seven
This fast-moving western stars Oscar® Winner* George Kennedy as the revered—and feared—gunslinger Chris Adams! When a Mexican revolutionary is captured, his associates hire Adams to break him out of prison to restore hope to the people. After recruiting six experts in guns, knives, ropes and explosives, Adams leads his band of mercenaries on an adventure that will pit them against their most formidable enemy yet! *1967: Supporting Actor, Cool Hand Luke
The Magnificent Seven Ride!
This rousing conclusion to the legendary Magnificent Seven series stars Lee Van Cleef as Chris Adams. Now married and working for the law, Adams’ settled life is turned upside-down when his wife is killed. Tracking the gunmen, he finds a plundered border town whose widowed women are under attack by ruthless marauders. Outraged and outnumbered, he resurrects the Seven to take on the killers in this final, emotional battle!
Akira Kurosawa's rousing Seven Samurai was a natural for an American remake--after all, the codes and conventions of ancient Japan and the Wild West (at least the mythical movie West) are not so very far apart. Thus The Magnificent Seven effortlessly turns samurai into cowboys (the same trick worked more than once: Kurosawa's Yojimbo became Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars). The beleaguered denizens of a Mexican village, weary of attacks by banditos, hire seven gunslingers to repel the invaders once and for all. The gunmen are cool and capable, with most of the actors playing them just on the cusp of '60s stardom: Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn. The man who brings these warriors together is Yul Brynner, the baddest bald man in the West. There's nothing especially stylish about the approach of veteran director John Sturges (The Great Escape), but the storytelling is clear and strong, and the charisma of the young guns fairly flies off the screen. If that isn't enough to awaken the 12-year-old kid inside anyone, the unforgettable Elmer Bernstein music will do it: bum-bum-ba-bum, bum-ba-bum-ba-bum.... Followed by three inferior sequels, Return of the Seven, Guns of the Magnificent Seven, and The Magnificent Seven Ride! --Robert Horton
