We love visiting NT properties and as there are very few in this part of Wales, we tend to visit this one a lot as it's our 'local' one. Lovely walks up to a ruined castle and through the wooded areas. The house itself is full of interest and the downstairs rooms are particularly well laid out and interpreted. Nice... More

Visited here on a recommendation. Glad I did. This is a lovely National Trust and CADW property set in 800 acres of park and woodland. The parking charge of £6 was an initial shock but it is the National Trust getting the funds and not some private parking company so the money will be put to good use. Spent the... More

dinefewr (pronounced dinever) is a nationa trust house in Llandeilo carmenthenshire. lovely house and sometimes they do tours up on the roof and rooms that the general public do not visit at no extra charge. and of course national trust members get free admission to the house. lovely grounds and a deer park (with deer) well worth a visit

Got married at Newton House in 2013 and it was perfect! You can either get married there, have photos there, or do what we did and hire a marquee and have your evening function on the lawn there aswell! Asides from weddings, it's a great place to visit, both for the park, Dinefwr Castle (CADW), and Newton House (National Trust)... More

Enjoyed walking round a NT house where you are not expecting the stewards to tell you off. You can sit on the chairs, play the piano and pick things up with no guilt! Food in the tearoom was limited in choice but very tasty (good cauliflower cheese) although I notice it is not an NT tearoom Walk up to the... More

We are National Trust members so parking and entrance were free. Dinefwr Castle and Newton House are in the very pretty town of Llandeilo. We visited Newton House first. The basement is fabulous, seeing where all the servants worked and you're allowed to touch everything. No ropes anywhere! The ground floor is laid out as it might have been in... More

My husband and I first visited on our honeymoon four years ago and have revisited many times since after becoming National Trust members after out first visit. Staff are very friendly and helpful and you are allowed to sit on the chairs, play the piano and touch artefacts. There is an informative video about the servants who worked at Dinefwr,... More

Beautiful castle. Stunning valley. Amazing parkland with wild deer. Not to be confused with Newton house which is NT and has a parking charge and entry fee. Dinefwr castle is free and an amazing asset to Carmarthenshire. If you are passing you should visit!

We are so pleased you have enjoyed your visit to Dinefwr. You are quite right the castle is owned by the South Wales Wildlife Trust and managed by Cadw - a beautiful castle with spectacular views. Dinefwr Park including the deer park, boardwalk, meadows and woodlands are owned together with Newton House by the National Trust. We hope you enjoy... More
