The National Trust have announced that they will be closing all of their attractions in Wales from the 14th December, in line with guidance from the Welsh Government put in place to help bring the Coronavirus back under control.
The Vale of Glamorgan's Dyffryn Gardens is one of National Trust locations affected by the guidelines. In a post on the attraction's social media page, representatives for the gardens have said:
"The safety of our staff, volunteers, visitors and local communities remains our priority. We will continue to follow Welsh Government restrictions and encourage everybody to follow the latest guidelines. We look forward to welcoming you back when we're able to."
The amendment to the current Welsh Government guidelines enforces the closure of all "outdoor attractions" in Wales. Government officials have yet to draw up a definitive list of what is classed as an outdoor attraction, though a Welsh Government spokesman said it meant any visitor attraction which attracts people outside for entertainment.
The measures coming into place from Monday are designed to combat the spread of Coronavirus here in Wales, with case numbers in the country rising rapidly in recent times.
Members of the public have responded to Dyffyn Gardens' statement on social media, with one commenter saying:
"So sad. Take care everyone at DG (Dyffryn Gardens) and look forward to seeing you soon. We will very much miss our weekly visits. Can't believe you have been instructed to close again."
