Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Husband & I spent a lovely couple of hours walking through the deer park, round the boardwalk and up to the castle. (Amazing views, but quite steep to get up there - although we did notice that there was a disabled parking space reasonably close to the castle so worth enquiring if the hill would be too much) The house...

Lovely house (Newton House), castle and deer park. Great views from the castle once you've made the trip up to it. Just don't put your bird in hand poo

What a breath taking place and countryside to die for I have not spent time in and around Llandeilo in over 20 years. The old castle and new one is very nice and if the Welsh wether had been better we would have done more. This is defenetly worth a visit

Small house where everything is hands-on. You can touch it all including play the piano! Small herd of white Park cattle to view close up from an escorted tractor tour. Deer park and miles of good walks including Dinefwr Castle ruins. User friendly.

The grounds are fabulous. Good mix of walks to suit all ages and abilities. The café in the house is great place to end a visit. The value depends on whether or not you are a member of the National Trust, if you are then it is exceptional value if you visit regularly.

It was a pleasant sunny day at home - 40 miles later as we arrived at Dinefwr it had become misty and minus 1 degree ! The welcome we received at the Welcome centre / reception more than made up for it. We walked the short distance to Newton House the former home of the Rhys family. Another great welcome... More

This is a must if you are in the area as long as it is not raining. The main house has a lovely little tea room serving wholesome and local food and reasonable prices. The ploughman's is very good and you can have a little tipple of local beer too. The big walk up to the old castle is great,... More

Well worth a visit and suitable for everyone - beautiful places to walk, the castle is still in good enough condition to walk up the steps and have a good look around. The deer park, again, is a lovely place to stroll about and explore. The house and various other walks were closed when my partner and I went (mid... More
