Gnoll Estate Country Park has been voted the best picnic spot in
Wales in the Warburtons National Picnic Awards.
Gnoll Estate was once owned by a wealthy industrial family, the
Mackworths. Today, the Estate has developed into a family park but
still maintains its original features. We have four large duck
ponds, two 18th century cascades and the ruins of Gnoll House.
Take a stroll around the park and have a kick about with the
ball in our open fields. Ask one of our Rangers about the ‘ha-ha’
and the ‘grotto’, unusual places created in the Mackworths, rather
The Park has a visitor centre, café, children’s play area and

vehicle entry fee per day.
