Festivals and special events

See External Links (menu above) for their websites. Future dates published so far as follows:

  • D&G Wild Spring Festival, 5 April - 5 May 2014: a fantastic month packed with daily events including Ranger-led walks, events for younger children and families, talks and presentations, etc.

What's New at Gelston

  • New for 2012, annual update and plans for the season. One side of A4 as a PDF document. Depending on your browser settings, the document will either open in Adobe Reader (normally runs separately, while this web page remains open), or else you will first be asked to choose whether to save the file or open it.
  • Bicycle hire: we now have 2 mid-sized adult bikes for roads and good forestry tracks, with simple and reliable hub gears (the old-fashioned kind, almost indestructible, now making a comeback because you can change gear when stationary or not pedalling). True mountain bikes for off-road riding can be hired locally elsewhere.

Watercolours of Gelston

Take a bit of Gelston home with you: watercolourist Philippa Jones has painted various pictures of the castle and estate, and these are available to buy (we take no profit on them). You can see one on the page Gelston Castle Courtyard, and one of the castle on Gelston Castle. She also made three paintings into top quality Giclee prints on watercolour paper (indistinguishable from the originals!), signed by her and in very limited editions of 10 prints only. Size 14 x 10.5 inches (excluding border). Price 75 each, unmounted but including postage & protective tube. See right for pictures. A present for someone who loves Gelston?
