Dinefwr is a wonderful 800 acre estate with parkland walks, a Mill Pond, Bog Wood Boardwalk, Childrens Play Area, Newton House with Tea rooms and courtyard shopping area and a Medieval Castle. The estate and Newton hosue are owned and managed by the National Trust. Castle Woods and Dinefwr Castle are owned by the South Wales Wildlife Trust and managed by Cadw.

Dinefwr is a beautiful place to escape the rush of modern life and enoy the scents and sounds of nature. Whether you are marvelling at the wonderful panoramic views of the Towyi river from the castle parapets or getting up close to the dragonflies on the Mill Pond, you cant help but fall in love with Dinefwr's Parkland. There are walks to suit all abilities and childrens tracker packs to help families discover and have fun together.

Newton House is not a noral National Trust dressed house but instead acts as an exhibition telling the history of times gone by. The charm of Newton House is truely expereinced on the free Hidden House Tour. It is a house with no ropes and very much a space for families to enjoy. Fancy playing a steinway piano ? You can in Newton House. Inside the house there is also the Billiard Room, a licenced restaurant, the China Passage Art Gallery; and the Inner Courtyard Gift Shop show casing local products and plants.

Car Parking charges apply to those who are not members of the National Trust but allow free access to the parkland walks, play area and boardwalk as well as the access to the Castle. Admission to Newton House is charged separately but is free to National Trust members.

Lovely for walks

My husband and I regularly visit the park for lovely walks and afternoons in the countryside. It's lovely for families and couples. The House and tea rooms are lovely too.

This castle is our "local" when we stay in Wales so we visit each time. This time we went three times with various other visitors. The castle is up on a high hill, so has great 360 degree views. It was a muddy walk due to all the rain, but its worth the view from the castle. There is a... More

Saw the signs in Llandeilo and visited on spec. Glad we did. Great venue with both a house and a castle to see. Newton House is interesting and informative and its interesting to see the differences between life upstairs and life for the servants downstairs. The walk to the castle is great on a dry day. It takes around 20... More

A really nice afternoon out walking the grounds, but if i am honest we left feeling just a little disappointed. 3 parts to the day, the house, the grounds and the castle. Firstly, they don't make this clear, but the castle is not part of the national trust site that you pay for, and can be visited for free if... More

The castle is not accessible to those with walking difficulties. But if you are able to walk there the views are stunning. There are also wildlife walks and sometimes timetabled events. Look at the website for details.

One of our must visit places we finally made it there but this time it could only be a quick visit. What a wonderful place. The guided tour, which takes you onto the house roof, is not to be missed, the views were spectacular from up there. We didn't have time to walk to the castle so shall be having... More

We have spent a wonderful day here - had a good look around the house, admired the fallow deer - sadly no view of the White Park cattle but can understand why. But the highlight - well two highlights - were the two tours that we went on. The first the 'Hidden House tour ' took us around the house... More

We were in the area so on a recommendation, drove here. We hadn't realised that there was so much to see and we didn't have too long to see all of it. We wandered around The Boardwalk which is a 500m platform that meanders around the Bog Garden, After that , we popped to the house where we were welcomed... More
