Parkrun is open to walkers and runners of all abilities and its completely free! A sociable event, each week runners and volunteers meet in the Courtyard Cafe to enjoy a post-run coffee, cake and a chat.
Visitors should register with parkrun before their first run, for further information please see the dedicated Mount Stuart parkrun page https://www.parkrun.org.uk/mountstuart/. Parking is available at the new visitor car park close to the main house, please follow event signage.
Parkrun is run by a dedicated team of volunteers and is not operated by Mount Stuart Trust.
Teasses have been collaborating with Silent Space to reserve an area of the gardens where people could experience silence and quiet. Our Millennium Wood is designed as a silent space during our opening, between 10:00 and 12:00. Please help us by respecting this Silent Space and avoiding the use of mobile phones. Within the Millennium Wood, Claire & Dylan’s garden will present a further opportunity for silence: sit on one of the a benches, enjoy the view and a little space for quiet reflection.
Find out more about Silent Space by visiting their website. https://silentspace.org.uk/garden/teasses-estate/
